Heart diseases and stroke are the #1 cause of death in Virginia. Learn about the lifesaving work of the American Heart Association. Since 1924, we have been working to keep you, your loved ones and your community safe from heart disease and stroke.
We're building healthier lives where you live and work and making your community healthier by advocating for key health issues. We train millions of Americans each year in CPR and first aid, and educate healthcare providers every day. Find out more through our online tools, including Go Red For Women, Power to End Stroke, My Heart. My Life, our Youth Programs, and the Heart Hub, our online patient portal for information, tools and resources.
Each year we host multiple events in the Richmond area to bring awareness and education about our key issues and to raise funds for invaluable heart disease and stroke research. Join in the fight against heart disease and stroke by attending the Heart Walk, Go Red For Women Luncheon, Heart Ball. Or even better, consider volunteering, advocating for your health through You're the Cure, hosting a speaker at your next event, distributing materials at a health fair, finding a CPR Class, or contributing to our online communities. Here's the chance to make a real difference!
