Did you know—heart disease is the leading cause of death for men and women in the United States. Every year, one in four deaths are caused by heart disease. February is American Heart Month and serves to raise awareness about heart disease and how people can prevent it.

So how can you take steps to live a more heart-healthy life? A good start is eating healthy and moving more. Whether it’s biking, running or walking, shoot for 150 minutes of movement a week.

If you tuned into the big game yesterday, you may have had this commercial catch your eye too. Verizon paid tribute to First Responders and launched a campaign #AllOurThanks with a powerful ad. We wanted to take a moment to thank Verizon for using one of the country's largest stages to send this message of gratitude.

Similar to this ad, we know we have amazing stories right here in our community. If CES has helped you in the past and you're willing to share your story, we'd love to hear from. Please comment below, or send us a private message.
