2016-2017 Akron 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.
A highlight of the evening will be the Open Your Heart Appeal, during which time guests will learn about the experiences shared by local survivors of heart disease, heart defects and stroke. These inspiring individuals, who understand firsthand the value of vital health research and education, motivate the American Heart Association and its supporters to strive for an overall improvement in cardiovascular wellness.
We need you, and Together, we can change lives and saves lives!
