The Liver Life Walk Houston will be the American Liver Foundation - Desert Southwest Division 7th Annual dog friendly walk. Join us and help raise awareness to one of America's growing epidemics, Liver disease!
Liver Life Walk allows people affected by liver disease to come together and raise critical funds and awareness for the American Liver Foundation, all while having a good time. Each Liver Life Walk location features a festival-type atmosphere including activities for kids, food, entertainment and information about the American Liver Foundation.
Although liver disease is among the ten major causes of death in the United States, there was no national voluntary health agency devoted exclusively to combating liver diseases until 1976, when the American Liver Foundation was created by the American Association for the Study of Liver Diseases (AASLD). This organization of scientists and healthcare professionals was concerned with the rising incidence of liver disease and the lack of awareness among both the general public and the medical community. The mission, the programs and the services provided by American Liver Foundation complement the great work of AASLD.
