Raise your voice for POWER TO END STROKE
Through the Power To End Stroke cause campaign, the American Heart Association/American Stroke Association embraces and celebrates the culture, energy, creativity and lifestyles of African-Americans, while helping them to reduce stroke risks. While Power To End Stroke focuses primarily on stroke, heart disease also is a concern because the risk factors are similar. Together with gmc, Light Records and Roland Corporation U.S., they present the Most Powerful Voices to showcase inspiring music and aspiring artists across America. While you're here, learn how
you can raise your powerful voice and make powerful changes to help prevent stroke and heart disease.
