2017-2018 Seattle Heart Ball
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 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.
With a gift of $5,000, your impact could be: enrolling 250 new participants in the American Heart Association’s blood pressure management program, Check. Change. Control. This program is implemented in workplaces, churches and schools, and helps individuals lower their risk for heart disease and stroke.
With a gift of $2,500, your impact could be: providing 100 families with CPR Anytime® kits to teach lifesaving CPR skills and AED awareness. These kits could lead to an additional 2,000 lifesavers in Seattle alone!
With a gift of $1,000, your impact could be: training up to 20 healthcare professionals to identify and quickly treat patients suffering from the deadliest type of heart attack We work with hospitals, EMS, and healthcare professionals to make sure providers share a common commitment to American Heart Association treatment guidelines and improve heart attack survival.
With a gift of $500, your impact could be: teaching 25 families the connection between good food and good health by showing them the ultimate heart-healthy recipes in The New American Heart Association Cookbook.
Together, we can change lives and save lives!
