Brewster Commons At River Chase Apartments Hosts Happy Hour For American Heart Association

COVINGTON, LA – Brewster Commons at River Chase, an apartment community of 1st Lake Properties, Inc., located at 16309 E Brewster Rd., in Covington, LA, hosted a Heart Healthy Happy Hour for their residents and neighbors to benefit the American Heart Association during American Heart Month, in February, in an effort to educate the nation about heart disease and stroke. 

         The staff, team members, and residents of Brewster Commons at River Chase shared laughs, wine and healthy snacks to raise funds and awareness about the upcoming Northshore Heart Walk, to take place at Fontainebleau State Park on Saturday, March 19, 2016.

         “Heart disease is our nation’s #1 killer, causing 40.6% of all deaths,” said Trina Sammann, Northshore Heart Walk Director. “Stroke is our nation’s #4 killer and the leading cause of serious, long term disability. In our state, over 10,000 Louisianans die from cardiovascular disease and stroke each year. These are scary numbers, so it’s important for us to raise awareness, educate and promote healthy living. The Heart Walk is the premier fundraising event to do just that!”

         The Brewster Commons team shared fun facts and tips throughout February on developing better eating habits and creating nutritional options for a stronger heart and fit living. They challenged their residents to daily activities to increase behavioral changes and develop tools to make proper food choices.

         “We have learned that heart disease can be a genetic disposition or from lack of education about nutrition and exercise,” said Amy Ruiz, Property Manager of Brewster Commons. “But it can be controlled with proper diet and exercise.”
