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 community service projects. The Tulsa Heart Ball gala is the celebration of their work. It is a Tulsa tradition celebrating its 48th year with our event on February 9, 2019.
Since 1949, the American Heart Association has funded more than $3.4 billion in research to fight heart disease and stroke - more than any U.S. organization outside the government. We're a trusted leader in the worlds of science and medicine, funding the work of 13 Nobel Prize winners during 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.
Every donation is meaningful and brings us closer to our mission of reducing death and disability from cardiovascular diseases and stroke. Please consider helping today!
Please help me raise money for the American Heart Association's mission.
Heart disease of any type and cause, whether it be through coronary heart disease, high blood pressure, stroke, etc. are very serious. It is important to me that those who suffer from any heart disease have the support they need to make it through their journey. Some, if not all of us, have known someone who has some type of heart disease through genetics, someone who developed it later on, and someone who has sadly passed away from it. Heart disease comes in many shapes and sizes and should not be taken lightly. With the help of $1,000, you and I can do our part to help and support those who need us. Please join our 2019 Heart Ball's mission. Thank you.
