The community participated in the "Heart Walk" to show their support to the cause and to spread awareness among people about Sikhism, News India-Times reported.

"We fund innovative research, fight for stronger public health policies, and provide critical tools and information to save and improve lives," an official from the American Heart Association was quoted as saying.

"Our nationwide organization includes 156 local offices and over 3,000 employees," he added.

While participating in the event, organized on October 3, the members of the Connecticut Sikh Association said they will setup tables during next year's program to create awareness about heart diseases.

The American Heart Association was founded by six cardiologists in 1924 and includes more than 22.5 million volunteers and supporters.
