Help us ensure everyone in Kansas has the opportunity to live longer, healthier lives. 

Healthy for Good

Living healthy and free of disease makes a critical difference in quality of life. That’s why we’re working to raise awareness about the vital effect lifestyle has on health and helping communities form healthy habits.

Wear Red for Awareness

Give for the mothers, sisters, daughters and friends that you can't bear to live without. 

Kansas - Share your Story

Sharing your personal connection to heart disease or stroke can impact so many others.

American Heart Association Ambassador Program

The American Heart Association Ambassadors Program is a deep engagement opportunity to connect with the Association for up to three years. 

Ambassadors are directed in two different ways to support the American Heart Association; Heart Ball Ambassadors and the Go Red Ambassadors Leadership Council. The programs build off one another and provide the opportunity for leadership development, community involvement and heart health education. The Heart Ball Ambassadors program works with high school sophomore boys and girls; successful completion of the Heart Ball Ambassadors Program opens the door to apply for the Go Red Ambassadors Leadership Council Program as a junior or senior. 

*The Heart Ball Ambassadors program takes the place of the previous Sweetheart Program*

CPR &First Aid Training

Emergencies leave us feeling helpless, but they don’t have to. Take two minutes to learn Hands-Only CPR™ now. 70 percent of out-of-hospital cardiac arrests happen in homes. When a person has a cardiac arrest, immediate CPR can double or triple their chance of survival. Prepare to save a life, find a CPR course near you today.

Where You Live Determines Your Health

In our community, zip code may be more important than genetic code. But we’re working on a path to achieve optimal health for all. Did you know 80% of your health is determined by factors outside of a clinical setting and your genetics? We have the ability to improve heart health!
