Start! Lifestyle Change Award Finalist Sponsored by First American Payment
Systems and the Tarrant County American Heart Association
Through the Start! Lifestyle Change Award, sponsored by First American Payment Systems and the Tarrant County American Heart Association, the American Heart Association recognizes individuals
who have made positive changes to improve their quality of life and health. No
change is too small, and every accomplishment is significant!
10 finalists and 3 winners are chosen by a volunteer committee.
All 10 finalists and the 3 winners were recognized in the Lifestyle Change
Award Tent at the Start! Heart Walk by highlighting reasons for their nomination and why they
made it to the finalist status. This year there were over 12,500 people in attendance
at the Tarrant County Start! Heart Walk.
Reilly was the youngest finalist in Tarrant County since the beginning of
the Start! Lifestyle Change Awards 5 years ago. All 2010 finalists and winners were listed in the Fort Worth Business Press Start! Heart Walk special
insert in August 2011.
The Start! Heart Walk is the American Heart Association’s premier
fundraiser, gives people an opportunity to improve their health through walking
while helping fund the fight against heart disease and stroke. The Start! Program
encourages corporations and individuals to promote physical fitness and help
break down the obstacles that keep Americans from being physically active. The
movement focuses on walking as an activity because it’s accessible, free
and has the lowest dropout rate of any type of exercise.
