It’s going to be an adventurous day at the American Heart Association’s HeartChase event on Sunday November 20 at Westfield Valencia Town Center (24201 West Valencia Boulevard). Friends, family and community members will gather to compete in a community wide event to help support the fight against heart disease and stroke, the leading killers in the nation.
Mix The Amazing Race with shows like Minute to Win It, and you’ve got HeartChase. Uncover clues, solve puzzles and complete challenges, in an all out race to the finish line. The goal of SCV HeartChase is to raise $95,000. Participants pay an entry fee of $40 and are encouraged to conduct personal fundraising as they join other adventurers in their communities on a quest to decipher clues and participate in engaging and participatory activities at a series of checkpoints around town. The American Heart Association recently announced Chris Chegwin, Commercial Insurane Advisor for LBW Insurance and Financial Services, as chairman of the new Santa Clarita Valley HeartChase.
“It is such a great honor to be the chairman of the inaugural HeartChase event here in my hometown,” said Chris. “Too many people are dying of heart disease, stroke and other cardiovascular diseases in our community, but we have the power to change this. HeartChase is a fun and unique way to bring attention to and engage the community in a serious and important mission. I hope that my fellow Santa Clarita Valley residents will join me in the effort to save lives and build a healthier future for our community.”
Steve is a native of the Santa Clarita Valley and is actively involved in the community. The Santa Clarita Valley Business Journal named him a 40 Under 40 Honoree in 2010 in recognition of his occupational and community leadership. Steve is currently a Foundation member for the Child & Family Center and Chair of the Child & Family Center Golf Tournament and Young Leadership Corps.
Heart disease, stroke and other cardiovascular diseases claim the lives of more than 831,000 Americans every year. Funds raised at Heart Chase ensure that the AHA can continue its work of funding research that will help scientists and doctors better understand, treat and prevent cardiovascular disease; improving patient care; advocating for better health; and educating the public about heart disease and stroke risks, warning signs and prevention. American Heart Association-funded research has contributed to many important discoveries such as CPR, life-extending drugs, pacemakers, bypass surgery, the heart-lung machine and surgical techniques to repair heart defects.
