GREAT FALLS -

All across the county people are dancing not just for joy but also for heart health. The national Day of Dance is where Spirit of Women hospitals are dancing to raise awareness for heart health.

"Well heart disease kills more than anything else in the county, men and women so this entire event is just raising awareness and heart health," says Mack Sullivan.

Avrie Costley got a chance to tour the mega heart display during school yesterday and today took her father to learn more about heart health.

"I think it is important to learn about our heart because well you need to take care of your heart and you don't wanna smoke and that can cause cancer so you need to take care of your heart," Says Avrie.

Taking a tour through the new exhibit called the mega heart, avrie and her father now better understand a issue that happened to Avrie's Grandfather.

"Well about a year and a half ago my father had some horrible back pains heart wasn't even in the question. and enviably having to have triple bypass surgery and so I waned to come here, avrie said it was extremely exciting to see the heart and go through the heart so she wanted to bring me through here," explains Brandon Costley.

Avrie's father Brandon says he has learned a lot about keeping his heart in tip top condition.

"Well we know that is one of the leading killers in the united states is heart disease and so making sure that we eat healthy and then we excises and do things to keep our heart healthy just so that we don't unforeseen you know instances," says Brandon.

Folks got free blood pressure screenings and of course the chance to dance.
