Thanks to a generous $250,000 gift from the Mark and Brenda Moore and Family Foundation, the Mid-Atlantic Affiliate will be able to implement our “Best Practice” model for implementation of Empowered to Serve Faith by conducting launch events in Richmond, Raleigh, Hampton Roads/Newport News and Raleigh/Durham, providing resources to our faith partners to support our efforts in creating built environment changes, and supporting an affiliate “Empowered” celebration event to recognize and celebrate accomplishments across the affiliate.

Our mission is to be a relentless force for a world of longer, healthier lives. For nearly 100 years, we’ve been fighting heart disease and stroke, striving to save and improve lives. Heart disease is the No. 1 killer worldwide, and stroke ranks second globally. Even when those conditions don’t result in death, they cause disability and diminish quality of life. We want to see a world free of cardiovascular diseases and stroke.
