1st annual Take Heart luncheon was a huge success!
The Hope Heart Institute’s “Take Heart luncheon” culminated October 20 at Seattle Sheraton Hotel, raising $135,000 to improve health outcomes for underserved and at-risk members of our community. Dr. Mark Dedomenico was proudly honored with the Change the Course Award and Seattle Seahawk defensive lineman Michael Bennett led the wave of change to put children on the path to cardiovascular health by pledging his support via surprise video.
A Healthy Dose of Thanks
How would your life change if you spent one minute each day writing down something you were thankful for? At the end of a year, you would have an entire journal filled with memories and moments when you were the most happy. Gratitude has a special way of turning even the most unpleasant situation into something beautiful. By acknowledging the things others have done for us, we in return grow to be more thoughtful and caring people. Gratefulness allows us to be present in the moment with our loved ones and see the positive light in any situation.
At The Hope, we appreciate…those who support our mission to battle cardiovascular disease in individuals, families, neighborhoods, schools, and local communities! We would not be able to deliver educational programs and share the power of prevention with our community, without the help from our generous supporters. We are thankful for the generosity of our volunteers, donors and corporate and nonprofit partners. Working together, we are making cardiovascular disease more beatable, treatable and preventable.
A Healthy Dose of Thanks
Studies have shown that people who regularly feel thankful are a step ahead when it comes to health. Robert Emmons, a psychology professor at the University of California at Davis, has found that those who adopt an “attitude of gratitude” as a permanent state of mind, experience many health benefits. Grateful people are more likely to:
- Take better care of themselves mentally and physically
- Get regular exercise
- Eat a healthier diet
- Have improved mental health alertness
- Cope better with stress
- Feel happier and optimistic
- Have stronger immune systems
Helping Women In Our Community
The Hope Heart Institute has received a $150,000 grant from Foundation for the National Institutes of Health! The Heart Truth Community Action Grant will fund integration of the heart truth®, empowering community organizations to help women understand and lower their risk for heart disease.
The Hope Heart Institute is one of four organizations nationwide to receive The Heart Truth Community Action Grant sponsored by the Foundation for the National Institutes of Health (FNIH) as part of a public-private partnership with the National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute (NHLBI).
The grant will be used to integrate The Heart Truth, the NHLBI’s national education program for women about heart disease, and National Wear Red Day® with The Hope Heart Institute’s Women Take HeartTM Program. These initiatives help raise awareness about women’s heart disease symptoms and provide women with practical and effective tools for healthier living. Sub-grantees include the YMCA of Seattle-King County-Snohomish County (YWCA), Mercy Housing Northwest, Global to Local, Valley Medical Center and CanCan Health. Together, we will reach more than 22,000 women in our community.
