Keeping Hearts Beating,
Gets Our Hearts Pumping!
Until the world is free of heart disease and stroke, the American Heart Association® has the passion and persistence to fund, and ultimately find, a cure to the world’s leading causes of death. Help us create a culture of health in our homes, schools and workplaces.
Teaching local students to save lives
When CPR is preformed properly and promptly during cardiac arrest, survival rates can double or triple. We fought to make this lifesaving training a graduation requirement for all Texas students. By filling our city with bystanders equipped to take action, we are helping to improve survival odds for everyone in Texas.
Improving Quality of Life
Living healthy and free of disease makes a critical difference in quality of life. Check. Change. Control. is working within our community to raise awareness about the vital effect lifestyle as on health, make healthy options accessible and available for all. Our programs help children form healthy habits that will last a lifetime, by removing obstacles to making healthy choices.
You're the Cure is working within our community to empower citizens to take informed action on local and state policies, and champion policies and laws that help people avoid unhealthy practices and create safer communities. Our advocates are addressing critical healthcare concerns by advocating for policies that can improve access and boost the quality and value of care.
The Moment You Move More
Americans’ sedentary lifestyles are increasing their risk for heart disease and stroke, but small steps—actual steps—lead to big gains and can help you become Healthy For Good. Whether it’s walking, running, biking, swimming, playing sports or doing yoga, the American Heart Association recommends adults get at least 150 minutes of moderate aerobic activity per week, or 75 minutes of vigorous activity. Kids should get at least 60 minutes of activity every day.
If you don’t want to sweat the numbers, just move more. Sneak more steps into your daily routine and find forms of exercise you enjoy.
