    Dozens of community members and special guests celebrated the mission of the American Heart Association (AHA) at the Clinton Area Go Red for Women event on Friday, July 16. The digital experience celebrated the AHA’s lifesaving mission, donors and volunteers, and most importantly, the lives saved and improved because of the Association’s efforts.

    The event included a touching story told by our featured survivors, Hannah and her daughter Raegan, a cooking demonstration from Chef Chris Remrey, a message from our 2021 Chair, Regina Lehman, and an inspirational message from our keynote speaker, Heather Baker.

    The event raised $14,473, which support the American Heart Association’s research, education and advocacy efforts. Research funded by the association has yielded important discoveries such as CPR, life-extending drugs, pacemakers, bypass surgery, surgical techniques to repair heart defects and more.
