Each year high school sophomores from the Tulsa area come
alongside the American Heart Association through our Heart Ball program.
These students learn how to be champions for heart health. Through CPR
and healthy cooking classes they learn how to save lives and improve
health. They also give back to our community through fundraising and
hosting a holiday party for children with congenital heart defects. The
Tulsa Heart Ball gala is the celebration of their work. It is a Tulsa
tradition celebrating its 47th year with our event on February 17, 2018.

their careers. The research we've supported has led to breakthroughs that
have saved countless lives including the first artificial heart valve, the
implanted pacemaker and CPR techniques and guidelines. Since 1951, the
AHA has funded more than $31 million of research in Oklahoma.
