Co-chairs Eric and Autum Edwards lead the 2021-22 Heart of Richmond year-long campaign, culminating in the 30th annual Richmond Heart Ball, to be held on April 29, 2022 at Main Street Station. The Richmond Heart Ball unites the community in celebrating progress toward equitable health and honoring survivors of heart disease and stroke.
"Autum and I have been personally impacted by heart disease and stroke and are committed to AHA’s mission of being a relentless force for a world of longer, healthier lives. Additionally, Phlow is thrilled to support this campaign due to its aligned mission of developing and manufacturing critical essential medications in the United States,” said Eric S. Edwards, MD, PhD.
The dollars raised by the Heart of Richmond campaign fund the mission of the American Heart Association to be a relentless force for a world of longer, healthier lives while supporting priority issues in the Commonwealth. In this role, they are focused on driving equitable health for every member of our community, with a special focus on reducing unmanaged hypertension rates, strengthening the chain of survival, and raising more than $1MIL to support the lifesaving work of the organization.
