Hearts of a Hundred

The Hearts of a Hundred Can Make a Difference

These are challenging times, especially for those with heart disease and stroke who may find themselves at an increased risk of complications should they get COVID-19.

The situation is rapidly evolving, and scientists are learning more every day. The American Heart Association is working to ensure that two areas of critical need in Tarrant County communities are prioritized.

The Hearts of a Hundred each commit to:

  • Tell 10 people about the importance of calling 911 at the first sign of a heart attack or stroke

  • Make a donation to support the 911 emergency initiative, high blood pressure initiative and the full mission of the American Heart Association.

Mental Health

Feelings of stress, anxiety, uneasiness and lack of sleep can make it difficult to function normally. Mental health and physical health are closely linked, so finding ways to combat and manage stress in the (virtual) workplace and exercise while working remotely. 

Move More

With school and gym closings, our exercise routines are no longer routine. Use this time as an opportunity to switch up our workout regimen, which can help to boost our immune system, help relieve mental stress and improve overall health.
