About the Heart Heroes T-Shirt Campaign
The University of Michigan Frankel Cardiovascular Center is proud to partner with the American Heart Association (AHA) to help make advances in cardiovascular research and education. An integral part of this partnership is the U-M “Heart Heroes” t-shirt campaign, which has supported the Washtenaw County Heart Walk since 2015. Since 2015, the Heart Hero T-Shirt Campaign has raised almost $50,000 for the AHA.
What is a “Heart Hero”? A “Heart Hero” can be anyone:
- A person to be admired for their courage in the fight against cardiovascular disease; a survivor or caregiver
- One who supports cardiovascular disease prevention, education, and research
- A health care professional dedicated to bettering the lives of patients with cardiovascular disease.
Why Do We Do This?
The U-M Frankel Cardiovascular Center wholeheartedly supports the mission of the AHA; Building healthier lives, free of cardiovascular diseases and stroke.

And from 2013-2017, the AHA has funded 117 research studies equaling $13,732,670, and U-M remains the largest funded institution in Michigan.
