The Upstate Team is so grateful for our volunteers and supporters who are a relentless force for longer, healthier lives for everyone in the Upstate area. Keeping hearts beating is what keeps our hearts pumping. We hope you will join us in our mission!

Get Involved

You are an important part of helping us fight heart disease and stroke. Here are few ways to get involved. 

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.

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. 

Your Voice Matters

We will only beat heart diseases and stroke if we work together. In South Carolina, we support and advocate for public policies that will prevent cardiovascular diseases. This year we are advocating for policies that focus on improving quality systems of care, decreasing tobacco use, and increasing access to healthy food options.
