NEW YORK, NY, February 1, 2024 —The new year marks the 100th birthday of the American Heart Association and the start of the organization’s Bold HeartsTM campaign, a celebration of a century of profound impact on heart health and well-being.

Leadership of the signature campaigns of the American Heart Association in New York City have demonstrated their commitment to the transformative work ahead in the second century. The bold leadership needed to catapult the American Heart Association’s next 100 years of relentless work and transformative innovation starts today.

Beginning a new century of mission critical work, the organization continues its steadfast commitment to making the bold moves needed for new paths of scientific discovery, eradicating barriers to health equity and advocating for healthy policy so that every member of the New York City community has the opportunity for a longer, healthier life. That pledge to the community is shared with likeminded community leaders and organizations who are relentless in their support to eliminate heart disease and stroke in the new century.

“The American Heart Association’s centennial is a celebration of the lifesaving achievements and shared vision for a bold new century that will exponentially advance heart and brain health,” said Joe Simone, President, Simone Development Companies, 2024 Centennial Chair of the Heart of New York City campaign and member of the New York City board of directors. “With a focus on the work that lies ahead, bolstered by a commitment to learn from the past, the Association celebrates what it has accomplished, thanks to the hard work and dedication of generations of volunteers and donors.”

Since its founding on June 10, 1924, the American Heart Association, devoted to a world of healthier lives for all, has helped transform the nation’s health and significantly reduce heart disease and stroke death rates. But there is much work to be done.

“As we close out our first 100 years and begin the next, our work remains as important as ever.

“This relentless pursuit will continue until heart disease and stroke are the stories of our past and not of our future. A world with equitable health and well-being fuels a future that is yours to create,” said Tifphani White-King, Principal, US National Tax Practice Leader for Mazars and Centennial Chair of the 2024 New York City Go Red for Women® movement. “We know we can’t do this work alone. Volunteers, donors and advocates are key to accelerating this lifesaving work.”
