Dear Friends and Supporters,
Over the past year, the American Heart Association has underscored its commitment to a culture of well-being through communications, policies, and other resources – all to support the diverse needs of communities across the Greater Philadelphia region.
With this said, we are so pleased to share our latest Quarterly Impact Report, highlighting the local efforts of our staff, volunteers, and community partners, to improve health and well-being for all, with a focus on those at greatest risk and with limited resources.
I encourage you to contact me if you have questions or want to learn more about the American Heart Association. Thank you for your ongoing commitment and support of our mission. Without you, our work would not be possible.

2020 Philadelphia Heart Ball
The 63rd Annual Philadelphia Heart Ball was held on February 22, 2020 at the Simeone Foundation Automotive Museum. The Philadelphia Heart Ball raised $1.9 million toward reducing the risks of heart disease in all Americans. Locally, we work with programs like the Alain Locke Food Pantry to help fill gaps in food access in West Philadelphia; most recently, supporting infrastructure upgrades to the pantry which gave them additional storage and factory-grade refrigeration systems. The American Heart Association supports these types of grassroots initiatives in effort to supply all Philadelphians with access to a healthy lifestyle.
2021 Go Red for Women
The American Heart Association’s Go Red for Women movement is the trusted, passionate, relevant force for change to end heart disease and stroke in women all over the world. While nearly 80 percent of cardiac events can be prevented, cardiovascular disease is the leading cause of death in women, claiming the lives of 1 in 3 women. For 15 years, Go Red for Women has provided a platform for women to come together, raise awareness, fund life-saving research, advocate for change and improve the lives of all women everywhere. The Go Red for Women movement is nationally sponsored by CVS Health, with local support from Main Line Health.
