About the Fox Valley Heart Fund

The Fox Valley Heart Fund was founded in 2004 to help men and women from every racial and socio-economic background overcome the unique challenges and barriers they face to living heart-healthy lives. One of the most important accomplishments was the creation of the Aurora Community Heart Clinic, a partnership with Rush Copley and VNA Health Care. During the past year, 227 patients were seen in the Clinic. These patients received preventive screenings or follow-up care and learned how to lead a heart-healthy lifestyle. The Fox Valley Heart Fund also supports community outreach programs related to cardiovascular risk reduction topics, offering screening and risk assessments, an Annual Women’s Heart Symposium, donations of AEDs to local churches and nonprofits and supports the efforts of the Heart Sisters support group.
