Commit to Better Health
The Community Outreach Team has joined the American Heart Association again this year to support the “Go Red for Women” movement and help increase heart health awareness and save lives to fight against heart disease in women. HELP US REACH OUR GOAL OF $1,000 with a donation to support this cause. MMI will match employee donations dollar for dollar, up to $500. Make a donation and receive a keychain, wristband or magnet ($5 or more) or paper heart ($1 or more). During the month of February, you can donate here on this fundraising page.
Here are just a few ways your donations can make a difference.
$10 Teaches more than 100 adults save a life by recognizing the signs of heart attack or stroke and how to administer CPR or use an AED. Provides a wallet card they can keep in their back pockets for reference.
$10 Makes it easier for people to find AEDs in public places. This donation covers the costs of placing nine identification stickers in public places, directing people to these devices that can save someone’s life. Congress mandated the public placement of AEDs in response to AHA lobbyists.
$15 Reaches 100 African-American or Hispanic individuals with heart disease and stroke prevention information, and encourages them to participate in Search Your Heart, our cultural health program.
$20 Highlights stroke risks for 50 individuals and gives them a better understanding of how they can help prevent cardiovascular disease.
$100 Provides information and inspiration to help four stroke survivors maximize recovery and independence with a subscription to Stroke Connection, a bi-monthly periodical and our biggest outreach to stroke families.
$200 Engages 1,000 women to learn their risk of heart disease by conducting their own Go Red Heart Checkups.
$300 Teaches 10 families in your community the connection between good food and good health by showing them the ultimate heart-healthy recipes in The New American Heart Association Cookbook.
