Open Your Heart is the space within the American Heart Association where Heart Ball donors can see, celebrate and live their investment in our mission.

With one out of every three U.S. adults affected by heart disease or stroke, we have a lot more to do before everyone has the same opportunity to live a long and healthy life. That’s what Open Your Heart is trying to achieve.

Together, we can change lives and saves lives!
