The American Heart Association's Richmond Team is grateful for the volunteers and supporters who are a relentless force for longer, healthier lives for everyone in the Richmond area.  Keeping hearts beating is what keeps our hearts pumping here at AHA. We hope you will join us in our mission!

"Where we work, play, live, learn and pray should help our health, not harm it.  Our Hard Hats With Heart initiative is bringing science-based workplace wellness resources to the construction industry, which has the highest use of tobacco, a major risk factor for cardiovascular diseases and stroke."
