Raising Money & Awareness for Heart Health with Gordmans & American Heart Association

Raising Money & Awareness for Heart Health with Gordmans & American Heart Association featured by top US fitness blog, Walking in Memphis in High Heels

All month long Gordmans has been partnering with American Heart Association to help raise awareness and funds to make a difference in people’s health, homes and communities, and there are so many things you can do to help too!

You can get involved at your local Gordmans store where they are hosting events and give back initiatives to raise money for AHA. During April, you can also post an image on Facebook or Instagram with the hashtag #GetPumpedForHeartHealth. For every post with this hashtag, Gordmans will donate $1 to AHA (up to $10,000.)

If you would rather do than donate, you can also help by spreading awareness about how important it is to live a healthy life…so you can live a long life! For nearly 100 years, AHA has been fighting heart disease and stroke, striving to save and improve lives.

You can do things such as ask a friend to go for a run, bring a healthy meal to work next time there is a potluck, take your significant other to the spa for a little relaxation time. All of these things are an important part of living an active and healthy lifestyle and can help to jump-start healthy habits in your lives and the lives of people you love. Join me this last week to help donate or spread awareness about the #GetPumpedForHeartHealth Campaign, and thanks to everyone who has shared this great campaign on Instagram and Facebook so far!

What about you? What have you been doing lately to lead a healthy lifestyle? Let me know in a comment below!

    My main thing is usually cutting down on carbs and sugar. I tend to workout about 5 times a week and I pretty much just drink water (or fruit and veggie smoothies). Thanks for spreading awareness!

    Oh this sounds like a great way to bring awareness to this often silent killer. And diet is key and is the first step.

    Thanks for posting and love this head to toe gray look!

    Heart disease runs in my family so it’s important for me to maintain a healthy and active lifestyle– eating good-for-you and heart-healthy foods and getting gym time in. Thanks for spreading such an important message!

    Such an important message – my dad had open heart surgery and almost died due to heart disease so this is a cause that’s near to my heart.
