Promote heart health with a fun event.

There are a lot of battles to fight when promoting good heart health: awareness, education, making good food choices, getting active. There’s so much to do, it can be sometimes hard to figure out where to get started. No worries, we’re here to help.

Here are a list of great event ideas your organization can use to promote heart health:

You could host a Heart Walk to raise awareness and promote physical activity at the same time. Get your staff moving with a scheduled walk, whether it’s a long haul or just around the block. Event t-shirts will really add to a sense of purpose and community.

Another way to promote exercise is with an activity challenge. Students, in particular, enjoy jump rope events. If you want to raise money for great organizations like the American Heart Association, you can have participants seek sponsors who will pledge money for time jumping rope. It’s a fun way to get in shape. Consider ordering an event-specific jump rope for participants.

A Heart Ball is a fancy way to raise awareness about the dangers of cardiac disease. Black tie events let people show off their swankiest attire and educate people on the number one killer of both men and women in the United States. To make it extra special, order champagne flutes etched with the name of the event that people can take home with them afterwards.

The impact of heart disease on women is too often understated. Help raise awareness and fund research into stroke and heart attack prevention by taking part in the Go Red for Women movement. Have employees wear red on National Wear Red Day, or any other time to raise awareness. There are a whole host of items that support this movement and promote your brand at the same time. To discover them, talk to your Staples Representative.
