People in Frankfort are working up a sweat today as part of the American Heart Association’s Heart-Chase.

Teams competed in games based on reality shows like “The Amazing Race” and “Minute-To-Win-It.”

30 groups uncovered clues and completed challenges as part of the “My Heart – My Life” platform.

The American Heart Association says their overall goal is for people to embrace a healthier lifestyle.

By the year 2020, the American Heart Association hopes to improve cardiovascular health of Americans by 20%, while decreasing disease and stroke by 20%.
