AHA Pittsburgh Young Professionals

Our mission is to educate, to celebrate, to get physical, to serve and to inspire through fun and fitness!

Our young adult volunteers want to make a difference by increasing awareness and education of cardiovascular diseases and stroke while having fun.  They were inspired to get involved either because their lives had been directly or indirectly affect by heart diseases and stroke, or because they just wanted to be a part of this active community.

Improving the Health of Local Employees

On average, we spend more than half of our waking hours at work. That's why we've teamed up with local businesses to create a more physically active, health-conscious culture in the office. If you can't be healthy at work, then your boss needs to know.

Fighting for the Health of Newborns

Congenital heart defects are the top killer of newborns with birth defects.  We educated the local community on the need for a simple, non-invasive screening that could prevent these deaths.
