The American Heart Association (AHA) is so special to me because of the dual power of its mission. First, there is the amazing job year-in, and year-out, of educating the public while also raising much needed funds for research, treatment and cures for heart disease and stroke. The progress against these killers has been spectacular, but that is only half the story. The other part is the association’s concurrent mission to educate and change life behaviors to prevent these diseases in the larger general population and promote progressively healthier lifestyles for everyone. All this makes the AHA the perfect partner for me and the employee owners of McCarthy Building Company. I can think of no better place for us to concentrate our community service.
