Please meet our new American Heart Association volunteer and Grassroots Action Team member, Kevin Kempton.
The American Heart Association is honored to have some incredible volunteers and our work wouldn’t be possible without them. Their dedication and readiness to advocate for a healthier community and to help save lives through policy change is essential. This month we’d like shine a spotlight on Kevin Kempton. Kevin started advocating for the American Heart Association back in March and he has been an incredible help at the Denver Heart and Stroke Walk and at the Denver Vestido Rojo.

Why is advocating with the American Heart Association important to you?
My family has a history of heart disease and one of my mentors passed away recently from a heart attack. I am an advocate for getting the word out about potential heart disease and feel it is important to help inform others of how to live life to the fullest. I also believe in doing my part to help those that don't have access to information that could save their life and the lives of others.
