Heart Health Education
American Heart Association - The Phoenix Heart Ball
The Phoenix Heart Ball was created in 1959 by a small group of women in Arizona to raise money and awareness for heart disease and stroke. Now at 100 strong; funds raised by the Phoenix Heart Ball have supported research and scientific discoveries that advance the diagnosis, care and treatment of heart disease and stroke. One of the Phoenix Heart Ball’s main initiatives is supporting the Halle Heart Children’s Museum, the American Heart Association’s only hands-on, interactive cardiovascular learning facility in the nation.
The Halle Heart Children’s Museum, located in Phoenix, Arizona educates children and adults on a variety of health-related topics including the benefits of exercise, eating healthy and the importance of not using tobacco products. These important teachings are reinforced through a series of fun, interactive exhibits that illustrate how kids can make the heart-healthy choices to set them on the path to a healthier life.
Your donation can help our mission to build healthier lives, free of cardiovascular diseases and stroke. That single purpose drives all we do. The need for our work is beyond question. Your donations can help us do the following:
1) Provide life-saving CPR Training and education to under-served school districts where there is no budget.
2) Fund field trips to our Halle Heart Children’s Museum—the only cardiovascular learning facility in the nation; which creates an educational, interactive and contemporary museum experience for children of all ages to increase awareness and prevent cardiovascular diseases.
3) Help fund school programs for teaching gardens and promote healthy eating.
This RoomFunding Project will help fund the Phoenix Heart Ball efforts to support programs that help children learn about heart health.
