Las Vegas Strip Gets Big Heart | Entertainment
A huge heart rolled down the Las Vegas Strip Friday morning.
The heart will not only be part of Bodies...The Exhibition at the Luxor Hotel and Casino. It will also be used to teach people about heart disease, during American Heart Month.
Four MedicWest ambulances escorted the 600-pound sculpture of the heart down the Strip. It was welcomed at the hotel by American Heart Association spokesperson Amanda Daniels and 100 Cheyenne High School students. Daniels was diagnosed with heart disease when she was 18 years old. She now works to make sure kids think about their own heart health.
Daniels also surprised a Legacy High School class announcing that one of its students won a heart healthy poster contest held by the Clark County School District. Because of the win, the student's entire 10th grade class will get a field trip to Bodies...The Exhibition.
MedicWest provided blood pressure and blood glucose screenings to guests at the exhibit Friday.
