Get Involved

The Iowa Heart Foundation needs your help in supporting our mission of improving heart health education and the prevention of heart disease. We have a number of ways to get involved!

AED/CPR Awareness
Spread awareness of how lives can be saved if more know CPR and how to use an AED. Create an AED challenge by encouraging those at your place of work, community and school to know where the AEDs are located throughout the buildings. In addition, offer CPR training opportunities on site by partnering with a local training organization. 

Heart Health Education
Deliver health education programming on heart related topics to community groups, organizations, and schools. Reach out for presentation ideas and lessons to get you started. Check out our Heart Health Lessons!

Iowa Has Heart 5K events
Join our volunteer committees for our 5K Run/Walk events across the state to help recruit sponsors and participants, run the event, and spread the word. Interested in hosting an 5K Run/Walk event in your committee to support heart health initiatives? Reach out to learn more!

Plan a Fundraising Event
Plan an event to raise money to support heart health initiatives in your community, school, workplace, etc. Examples include fun runs, t-shirt sales, jeans days, golf outing, produce sales, etc. The funds can go towards local AED Placement, CPR Training, physical education programs, healthy eating opportunities, nutrition education, etc. Reach out to learn more!
