The 15th annual Hugh E. Stephenson, Jr. Heart & Stroke Ball was held in Columbia, Missouri on January 27, 2018. This event celebrates the mission of the American Heart Association and the American Stroke Association. As heart disease is the number one cause of death in both men and women in the United States, and strokes are number five, these organizations are very important to The Village of Bedford Walk and many others.
The American Heart Association and American Stroke Association’s goals are to fund research and education of cardiovascular disease and stroke. Families in every Missouri community have benefited from research nationwide that has led to many lifesaving discoveries.
