Open Your Heart is the space within the American Heart Association where gala donors can see, celebrate and live their investment in our mission.
With one out of every three U.S. adults affected by heart disease or stroke, we have a lot more to do before everyone has the same opportunity to live a long and healthy life. That’s what Open Your Heart is trying to achieve.
Together, we can change lives and saves lives!
From our 2018 Open Your Heart Moment...
Jeremiah was born with a severe case of aortic stenosis, or narrowing of the arteries, and suffered from a heart attack when he was less than a year old. Today, Jeremiah is 11 years old and enjoys jumping on the trampoline with his brothers and roller-skating. Jeremiah and his family are advocates for American Heart Association funded research. Jeremiah’s family shared his journey through the Open Your Heart appeal at An Evening with Heart 2018.
