It is my great pleasure to serve as the chair for the 15th annual Dayton Heart Ball. Heart disease continues to be the no. 1 killer of all Americans and the funds raised by this wonderful event enable the American Heart Association to continue life saving research and educational programs. The mission of the American Heart Association is “Building healthier lives, free of cardiovascular diseases and stroke”, and you can help in this important effort. All Americans both young and old, can benefit by living healthier lives. And with the emerging threat of childhood obesity, the American Heart Association is working to help children learn about heart health, risk factors and the tremendous benefits of physical activity and good nutrition. During the evening of the Heart Ball, all attendees will have an opportunity to support this cause, which will help further research and education for young people in the Miami Valley and beyond.
By joining us on Saturday, March 13th for the 2010 Heart Ball, you can ensure that the American Heart Association continues it life saving efforts through research and education.
