Cooper Cares About Heart Health

Thank you to everyone who contributed to the Cooper Aerobics Dallas Heart Walk team. We had a great time at Victory Park on Sept. 7! Thus far we have raised over $85,000 to take a stand against heart disease and stroke, the no. 1 and no. 4 killers of Americans. The American Heart Association—Dallas is accepting donations through Dec. 31. As of right now we are listed at #9 on the list of top fundraising teams!

Cooper Aerobics has a long standing history with the American Heart Association and we represent our support with the saying ‘Cooper Cares About Heart Health‘. Over 65 people represented our team with ‘Cooper Cares About Heart Health’ t-shirts for the Heart Walk this year.

We kicked off our fundraising efforts in July and awarded our teammates (employees) with incentives to help us reach our lofty goal! An even bigger incentive to all teammates, was Dr. Kenneth H. Cooper’s pledge to match our fundraising efforts with a contribution to our own non-profit, The Cooper Institute.

While preparing our team for the Dallas Heart Walk, Dr. Tyler Cooper and other teammates who took initiative to be Team Captains helped us remind everyone why we are fundraising and walking to put  The Names Behind the Numbers.

We walked proud in the largest Heart Walk in the nation just as our very own Dr. Kenneth H. Cooper did in the first Dallas Heart Walk in 1992. Click here to see more photos from the 2013 Dallas Heart Walk and our activities leading up to that special day.

The American Heart Association—Dallas‘ goal is to raise $5.5 million and currently has raised over $4.9 million! See the progress continue here.
