Every 40 seconds someone succumbs to heart disease and stroke – that’s 62,640 lives this February.
The American Heart Association is on a mission to build healthier lives, free of cardiovascular diseases and stroke. R&R Insurance is a proud sponsor of the AHA's 2020 Heart and Stroke Ball taking place on February 15. Leading the charge as this year's Chairman is R&R Owner, Jack Riesch. It's a personal mission for Jack to honor his late grandfather who passed from a heart attack and other life events proving that life can change in an instant - read more about Jack's mission.
