Share your story for a chance to become a local ambassador for the American Heart Association, and help us save lives and raise awareness about cardiovascular disease.

Hands-Only CPR Can Save Lives

Most people who experience cardiac arrest at home, work or in a public location die because they don't receive immediate CPR. As a bystander, your actions can help by giving Hands-Only CPR when you see a teen or adult collapse. 

Healthy For Good

You don’t need a guilt trip. We know you know. You want to be Healthy For Good. And we’re here to help inspire you to create lasting change in your health and your life, one small step at a time. The approach is simple: Eat smart. Add color. Move more. Be well.

The American Heart Association depends on the time and talent of volunteers to help us create a healthier world, free of heart disease and stroke. Whatever your capabilities, interests or schedule may be, we can find a volunteer opportunity that's right for you. 

Let's Talk Numbers

The best way to know if you have high blood pressure is to measure your blood pressure. Our Check. Change. Control. program uses self-monitoring and tracking of blood pressure readings at home to help you achieve and maintain a healthy heart. Sign up is easy, just use CODE4 as your campaign code when setting up your account.
