Miss A Columnist

From one Washington to the other, Susan Hunsinger is 25 and recently moved back to her hometown of Seattle after living in Washington, D.C. for seven years. She graduated from The George Washington University with a BA in Journalism and Mass Communications and is currently working as a legal assistant at a real estate law firm. When she’s not writing or working, Susan enjoys running along Elliott Bay, reading and exploring Pike Place Market for her mostly disastrous attempts at cooking. Previous to Ask Miss A, Susan had an array of internships at KING 5 News, NBC Nightly News, The New Yorker and The Daily Show. Before moving to Seattle she worked as an editorial assistant for DC Magazine and is thrilled to have the opportunity to shine some light on her favorite local charities, particularly those involving children.

By 2020, the American Heart Association hopes to improve the cardiovascular health of all Americans by 20 percent on top of reducing deaths from heart attack and stroke by 20 percent. And this fall, you can be a part of it by participating in their annual Puget Sound Heart and Stroke Walk.

The non-competitve walk will bring together over 100 companies, including Costco Wholesale, Microsoft, Amazon and Swedish Medical Center, at the Seattle Center on October 11, to celebrate those that have made significant changes to their health while encouraging others to do the same.

The money raised for the 3-mile walk will go toward research and initiatives that promote the prevention, treatment and patient care in cardiovascular disease, the leading killer in the United States.  While the event itself is free, participants are encouraged to fundraise as much money as possible.  Walkers who raise $100 or more get a free t-shirt and those that raise $1,000 will be invited to a special VIP breakfast.  Other great fundraising prizes range from water bottles and earbuds, all the way up to an espresso machine and flatscreen television!
