Live Better with Life's Simple 7
Know your heart score.

Rod and Rhonda Carew want you to know the first step to living heart healthy is to know your risks – and how to reduce them.

My Life Check® was designed by the American Heart Association with the goal of improved health by educating the public on how best to live. These measures have one unique thing in common: any person can make these changes, the steps are not expensive to take and even modest improvements to your health will make a big difference. Start with one or two. This simple, seven-step list has been developed to deliver on the hope we all have--to live a long, productive healthy life.

Why Should Students Raise Money Online

It’s safe! Our website is secure and protected. Student and donor information is not given out to any third parties. Plus, students don’t need to handle any checks or cash because donations are made online.

It saves time! Raising money online makes the money-counting experience faster and easier for you! Instead of collecting cash and checks to sort through, students print their online Gift History Report, which states how much money they raised, and enclose that in their collection envelopes. Plus, donors who make their contributions online are automatically emailed a donation receipt.

It’s effective! Students AND schools on average raise three times more money online than through collecting checks or cash. By using online fundraising, your students can help raise more money to save lives.

It’s easy! It takes just a few simple clicks for students to join their school’s online team (which has already been set up for you by the American Heart Association). After joining, students will have fun personalizing web
pages by uploading their photo and more!

It’s fun! Students can see how they are progressing toward their personal fundraising goals, and they can also see how their school is progressing toward the team goal.

It saves lives! Students can select email templates that include lifesaving information, including warning signs for heart attack and stroke, to educate family and friends.
