Inver Grove Heights, MN, February 8, 2010, 2010 – The Minnesota Chapter of the National Blood Clot Alliancewill host the first National Signature walk to Stop The Clot® on Saturday, May 15, 2010 from 9:00 am – 11:00 am at Centennial Lakes Park in Edina, MN. www.centenniallakespark.com.
Each day, 14 Minnesotans die from a blood clot. Many of these deaths could have been prevented if the signs and symptoms were recognized and proper treatment was provided. The Stop The Clot® walk will raise funds and awareness to help educate patients, healthcare providers and the general public about the signs, symptoms and risk factors of blood clots.
Start your team and your fundraising today by registering at www.StopTheClot.org/mn. Registration is $25. Raise an additional $75 and you will receive a Stop The Clot® walk inaugural event t-shirt. Recognition for the highest team and individual fundraiser.
