A Time for Thanks!

by Anne S. on Wednesday, November 21, 2012

 Since Turkey Day is upon us and many of us are gearing up for some heavy cardio on Friday trying to get the best steals and deals, I thought I would take a minute to reflect on the “Thanks” in Thanksgiving. 

I’d like to thank YOU on behalf of all of us who work here at the American Heart Association, for all you do as You're the Cure advocates to support policies to build healthier lives free of cardiovascular disease and stroke.  We can't spell CURE, without "U"! Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for your hard work to let policymakers know that you care about making Minnesota a Heart-Healthy state.

The advocacy team also wanted to share what we are each most thankful for this year!

Rachel Callanan: “I’m thankful for my health, my family, a great job I love, the chance to walk my dogs on a safe walk/bike trail, and dark chocolate, of course.”

Justin: “I’m thankful that in 2012 Minnesota became the 4th state in the country to require all graduating high school students to learn CPR. We’ve created a new generation of life savers and made our state a healthier and safer place. And most  of all I’m thankful for our volunteers and survivors who made it happen!”

Anne Simaytis: “I am thankful for the continued research to treat, diagnose and ultimately cure heart disease and stroke.  I am also extremely thankful for the wonderful volunteers who work tirelessly to advocate for the funding of life-saving research!”

Ngia: "I'm thankful for my family and friends.  And most of all, I'm very thankful for all the volunteers and survivors who continue to educate their families, friends, and communities of color on heart disease and stroke and to live a more heart-healthy lifestyle.  Thank you!"

What are you most thankful for this year?
