Cardiovascular disease is the leading cause of death in the nation and stroke is the third leading cause of death. The American Heart Association is the organization leading the charge to combat this deadly disease. Countless Americans owe their lives to AHA-funded research breakthroughs and the AHA’s professional guidelines, training, advocacy and programs. These people rely on the AHA to educate and empower themselves about nutrition, physical activity and other preventive measures. The American Heart Association has an extraordinary impact on lives by empowering people to save lives, live healthier and enjoy more peace of mind about cardiovascular disease.
I am proud to be the Chair of the 2011 Boise Heart Ball. This is an event and an organization that is vital to the health of our community and our country. The Boise Heart Ball gathers prominent executives, philanthropic and medical industry representatives to fund the 2020 impact goal of the American Heart Association. This goal states: By 2020 to improve the cardiovascular health of all Americans by 20% while reducing deaths from cardiovascular disease and stroke by 20% The event strives to honor and celebrate the success of the year that has passed and to set the stage for medical advancements, health breakthroughs and community-wide passion in the year ahead.
We could not accomplish the lifesaving work of the American Heart Association without the support of our community. Your participation in the 2011 Boise Heart Ball will help save lives and empower our community to live healthier. We extend a heartfelt thank you for your generous support.
