Heart Walk Dallas

by Cascade Ice on September 15, 2011

Cascade Ice joined Young at Heart Dallas for the American Heart Association Heart Walk last Saturday.We were able to give walkers an opportunity to cool off and hydrate in the Texas heat!

Heart disease and stroke are top killers in the United States, and the Heart Walk helps raise funds and awareness for prevention. Through healthy living habits, and exercising  for as little as 30 minutes a day, you can greatly reduce your risk of heart disease and stroke!

Cascade Ice is dedicated to promoting a healthy lifestyle. Our flavored waters have no sodium or sugar and are a heart healthier alternative to sodas and sports drinks.

Staying Cool in the Summer Sun

by Cascade Ice on June 8, 2011

Most of us are excited to come out of our winter hibernation, buy new summer clothes and enjoy our favorite outdoor activities. One very important thing to remember is to stay hydrated and pay close attention to your body as the temperatures rise. Here are some tips from the American Heart Association that can help:

  • Drink plenty of water and fluids! If it’s hot out and you’re not working up a sweat, you may be dehydrated so drink up!
  • Sunburns stink! Always wear sunscreen with at least SPF 15 and remember to reapply every two hours.
  • Keep in mind that the sun is at its strongest between noon and 3 p.m., so head inside if it’s getting too hot.
  • Dress for the weather. Wear lightweight clothes like cotton, and use sunglasses to protect your eyes.

Here’s wishing you a wonderful, fun-filled Summer! Do you have any special summer tips? Share them below!
