In celebration of Valentine’s Day, PeakActivity is raising funds and awareness for The American Heart Association.
To ensure that philanthropy remains at the heart of PeakActivity’s culture and organizational structure, we established Peak Cares.
Through Peak Cares, we help local organizations with marketing and communication strategies, pro bono software development services, and company-wide Service Days that keep us engaged with our community in meaningful ways.
The American Heart Association, Habitat for Humanity, and Kids in Distress are just a few organizations that PeakActivity frequently supports.
This month, Peak Cares is once again partnering with the American Heart Association in their mission to see a world free of cardiovascular diseases and stroke.
Why? Because heart disease continues to rank as the leading cause of death worldwide. And yet, an estimated 80% of cardiovascular disease, including heart disease and stroke, are preventable.
We know that the AHA is doing amazing work in advocacy, education, and research, and we want to help!
Our goal is to raise a minimum of $5,000 for the AHA while supporting their heart-healthy initiatives.
American Heart Association
The American Heart Association is the nation’s largest and oldest voluntary organization dedicated to fighting heart disease and stroke.
Their overall mission is to be a relentless force that creates a world of longer, healthier lives.
More specifically, the AHA’s 2020 Impact Goal is to improve the cardiovascular health of all Americans by 20% and reduce deaths from cardiovascular diseases and stroke by 20%, all by the year 2020.
So far (since February 2018), the AHA has reduced the number of deaths from cardiovascular disease by 15% and stroke by 14.3%.
Donations to the American Heart Association help to fund innovative research, advocacy, and patient support.
Additionally, donated funds contribute to more effective treatments, first-responder training, and educational programs that empower our families and communities to live heart-healthy.
