Michelle Nostheide, Executive DirectorThe Richmond AHA Team is so grateful for our 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. We hope you will join us in our mission!
Volunteer With Heart
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.
Go Red for Women®
One in three. That’s the price women pay for cardiovascular disease. It’s time to change this fact. It’s time to be demanding when it comes to women’s heart health and ask others to do the same. GIVE for the mothers, sisters and friends that you can’t bear to live without.
Lend Your Voice For A Healthier Virginia
We support and advocate for local, state, and federal public policies that will improve health outcomes and prevent cardiovascular diseases. This year we are advocating for policies that would: support funding to create a produce prescription program, support increased funding for the Virginia Food Access Investment Fund, and support resolutions that recognize racism as a public health crisis.
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.
