BENEFITING: American Heart Association
EVENT DATE: Jan 15, 2016
Hello, my name is Dawn Aliparo and I am the founder of Project Protect your Heart, it matters. My vision is to increase community knowledge and awareness regarding the incidence and prevalence of hypertension and how it adversely affects one’s health. Studies have shown that providing blood pressure screening will help actively decrease the incidence of heart attack, heart failure, stroke, and kidney disease. In addition, it will educate the community about lifestyle modifications that may prevent or treat high blood pressure. I truly believe that educating the public to manage risk factors such as high blood pressure is crucial in managing one's health and will help fight the battle of various cardiovascular diseases.
My project, to provide a FREE blood pressure screening event at a local community church along with a fundraising goal of $1000 towards the American Heart Association (AHA) by January 15, 2016 will ultimately help my vision come alive.
Your donation will help millions fight heart disease and promote awareness on the importance of managing one's health, RIGHT NOW. It starts with you. Protect that precious heart of yours, and the hearts of others!
