This fall, Hello Heart is hitting the road – and we’d love for you to join us and the American Heart Association (AHA) in making a meaningful impact on women’s heart health. Throughout September and October, you’ll find us walking at AHA Heart Walk™ events in Chicago, IL; Wheaton, IL; Dallas, TX; Atlanta, GA; and Austin, TX.

For nearly a century, the AHA has fought heart disease and stroke — helping families and communities across the nation thrive. The Heart Walks are the AHA’s premier event to raise funds for life-saving cardiovascular research, care, and advocacy. 

These events and the AHA’s mission of ‘building healthier lives, free of cardiovascular diseases and stroke’ not only align with Hello Heart's mission but also resonate personally with many of us, as heart disease continues to be the leading cause of death for women.

I would be honored to have you, your colleagues, family, friends (and pets!) join me at the event as part of Hello Heart's team. By participating, you can walk by our side to spread awareness about the importance of women's heart health and help the American Heart Association fund life-saving research and educational programs.

Here's how you can get involved:

Join the Hello Heart Pacemakers team and walk:
Sign up and join me and Hello Heart’s employees, partners, and friends as we walk for women’s heart health. 

Raise awareness on social media: Share your photos from the events using the hashtags #HelloHeartWalks and #HeartBetter.

Create your own team: If you'd like to rally your colleagues and friends around this cause, consider creating your own team under the Hello Heart umbrella. Together, we can amplify the impact of our collective efforts and have fun walking together.

Join your company's existing team: Many companies in our community have already established teams. You can search for your organization's team on your city’s local Heart Walk website and join them to show your company's commitment to heart health.

Make a donation to the American Heart Association: If you cannot participate in the walk but still wish to support the cause, you might consider donating directly to the American Heart Association. Your generous contribution will help advance vital research and life-saving initiatives in the fight against heart disease. 

Your participation, whether through walking, fundraising, or simply spreading the word, can bring us one step closer to building a healthier future for everyone, especially women—who continue to be twice as likely as men to die from heart disease complications. Every contribution, big or small, counts, and together we can make a real difference.
