American Heart Association is our chosen charity. American Heart Association’s mission is to create a better world by promoting longer and healthier lives. Their mission is to fight heart disease and stroke as well as help people live healthier lives via improved cardiovascular education and research.
Over 647,000 Americans die each year from heart disease. An additional 130,000 people die annually from heart disease in America each year. By educating individuals about their risk factors for developing heart-related illnesses and promoting healthy lifestyles through exercise and nutrition, it’s possible to reduce these numbers drastically.
In order to prevent the onset of serious complications, it is important that resources are available for research into new methods in cardiac care. Finally, it is important to invest in programs that increase access to lifesaving treatment for those who are most vulnerable.
