Participating Retailer of American Heart Association's Life is Why We Give
The American Heart Association, the world's leading voluntary health organization devoted to fighting cardiovascular disease and stroke, has enlisted the support of corporations in raising funds for the cause. When consumers purchase TITLE fitness gear from TITLE Boxing, they will have the opportunity to give to the American Heart Associations via the Life Is Why We Give™ fundraising campaign.
TITLE Boxing is one of the businesses helping the American Heart Association to fight heart disease and stroke - the number one and number five causes of death in America. While TITLE is headquartered in Kansas City, the fundraising campaign will span the nation.
Avid gym goer and two-time heart transplant recipient, Chris Williams, is one of the many excited about this partnership.
"I survived two heart transplants because of research funded by the American Heart Association. It's amazing how much smoother my second transplant was, even though they only happened three years apart. I'm living proof of the advancements made and I'm thrilled to see TITLE Boxing's commitment to the health of all Americans," said Williams.
TITLE Boxing's Life Is Why We Give™ campaign includes a 10% donation from the following at different phases throughout the year:
- TITLE Fitness Gear purchases
- limited edition "Got Heart" tee
- TITLE Fitness Bundle purchases
- limited edition AHA-branded hand wraps
- limited edition AHA-branded boxing gloves
TITLE Boxing joins a number of national companies, including: Barrett Jackson, Bourbon & Boweties, Brahmin, Brighton, Brita, Citi, eBay, Everything ORGO, FabFitFun, Fifth Third Bank, Ford, Healthy Human, HP Papers, Kroger, Land's End, OfficeMart.com, Pilot Flying J, Spirit Fitness, Stein Mart, The Knot, Wheels Up and White + Warren.
"Together we are fighting heart disease & stroke to create healthier communities for all. This partnership will help to create a culture of health while laying a foundation that will help the American Heart Association reach our goal of improving health and reducing death & disability," said Laura Lopez, Executive Director for the American Heart Association.
As the leading source of non-government funded cardiovascular science, the Association has invested more than $3.7 billion in scientific research and discovery since 1949. The organization trains approximately 2 million high school graduates in CPR every year and has reduced cardiovascular disease mortality by 70 percent since 1968.
