Hi! I am so excited about the opportunity to be part of the Northwest Arkansas American Heart Association's Sweetheart program this year. During this year I will be participating in several events to spread awareness about heart disease and how it can be prevented. As part of this program, I have also been asked to raise $1,000. Donations given to the AHA help fund research for new treatments, provide programs for survivors and their families, and help educate people to lower their risk.
Both of my grandpas were affected by heart disease - my Grandpa Elmer had bypass surgery and my Grandpa Ron died at a young age of a heart attack - so this program is especially important to me.
Thank you for your support in helping me raise funds for the American Heart Association!
