On Saturday, Sept. 27, 2015, more than 1,000 people from Santa Barbara and nearby cities raised $200,000 for the Santa Barbara Heart & Stroke Walk/5k Run.

The 5K walk and run encourages healthy habits while raising funds to support the American Heart Association’s research and education efforts to fight heart disease and stroke — the nation’s No. 1 and No. 4 killers.

Heart disease, stroke and other cardiovascular diseases are the leading killers in the United States, claiming the lives of more than 831,000 men, women and children every year.

The Heart Walk brings the community together to raise both awareness and much-needed funds to fight these diseases.

The American Heart Association is devoted to saving lives from heart disease and stroke by funding innovative research, setting best practices for improving patient care, fighting for stronger public health policies and providing lifesaving tools and information to prevent and treat the leading causes of death in the U.S.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
