Our Community Impact in West Michigan
This year, we have proven we can turn on a dime to address our county’s biggest health challenges. But we have more to do. By participating in our events such as Heart Walks, Galas, Go Red for Women and the Kids Heart Challenge, you further the mission of the American Heart Association.
Rethink Your Drink
We won’t sugarcoat it: sugary drinks like energy drinks, pop and fruit drinks have been linked to heart disease and other chronic illnesses. But with a few substitutions, Michigan families can dump the sugar and improve their health.
