2016-2017 Reno Heart Ball
By the time you finish reading this letter, two Americans will have died from heart disease. As the number 1 killer of Americans, it’s a sad fact that no one can escape being touched by heart disease or stroke in some way. In fact, over 5,000 Nevadans die from cardiovascular disease and stroke each year.
The American Heart and Stroke Association is dedicated to creating healthier lives free of cardiovascular diseases and stroke. To that end, I am proud to Chair the 30th Annual Northern Nevada Heart & Stroke Ball. In addition to raising vital funds for heart disease and stroke research, medical advancements and education, the Ball engages companies to promote healthy lifestyles for their employees and our community.
I hope you will join me in supporting such a worthy cause. If you have any questions or need more information, please contact Allison Edwards, the Director of the Ball at: 775.332.4825 or office 775.322.7065. There are many ways to get involved with the AHA, and we encourage you to learn more about our Health Initiative efforts.
We look forward to seeing you at the Heart & Stroke Ball!
