CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCIV) - It's the number one killer of all Americans.  One out of every four deaths in the United States is because of heart disease.  That's a statistic the American Heart Association is trying to change.  

On Tuesday the Lowcountry chapter kicked off this year's Heart Walk season with a luncheon at Outback Steakhouse.  For the next two months sponsors will recruit volunteers and businesses to take part in the walk for a cure. 

"It's important that all of us pull together and companies sign up for the Heart Walk," said SC Ports Authority spokeswoman Allison Skipper.  "We need volunteers to raise important dollars to go towards heart disease research."

The Heart Walk will take place on September 28, at 9 a.m.  Organizers have set the fundraising goal at $775,000.  For more information and to donate click here.
