Imagine a world without heart disease or stroke. Many say this is unattainable, considering heart disease kills more Americans than the next four leading causes of death combined. But this vision — for a world free of heart disease and stroke — drives the lifesaving mission of the American Heart Association. Open Your Heart gives donors the opportunity to make a direct impact on the AHA’s mission by making a personal gift. Your personal gift stays here in Eastern Iowa.
Your generosity enables the American Heart Association to fund groundbreaking research, develop guidelines to improve patient care and help people lower their risk factors for heart disease and stroke. As long as heart disease continues to be the nation’s No. 1 cause of death, the importance of our work will only grow. Please consider making a gift to Open Your Heart.Together, we can change and save lives!
Here are a few ways your donation dollars are used:
$500: Teaches more than 2,500 children how to avoid obesity and live longer, stronger lives through our nutrition and exercise educational materials.
$1,000: Mobilizes 2,000 women with our Go Red for Women movement and empowers them to take charge of their heart health with a personal record tracker and other health information.
$5,000: Helps 9,000 individuals get active using online tools such as the Start! Walking Programs Tracker, which records physical activity.
