American Heart Association

Daughter is why

It’s National Heart Month! For the month of February, we’re partnered with the American Heart Association to participate in their Life Is Why We Give campaign. In each of our stores, customers have the opportunity to support their community’s heart health by making a donation to the organization.

The American Heart Association uses donations to fund research and education programs around heart health. This includes heart disease, nutrition, exercise, and so much more. There are a number of things we can do to keep our hearts healthy, from stress management to giving our bodies healthy foods and the nutrients they need.

Miller Paint loves helping our local communities, and together, we can work to improve our community’s heart health. No matter what your age, everyone can benefit from a healthy diet and adequate physical activity.

  • Be physically active.  You can slowly work up to at least 2½ hours (150 minutes) of moderate-intensity aerobic physical activity (e.g., brisk walking) every week or 1 hour and 15 minutes (75 minutes) of vigorous intensity aerobic physical activity (e.g., jogging, running) or a combination of both every week.
  •  Additionally, on 2 or more days a week you need muscle-strengthening activities that work all major muscle groups (legs, hips, back, abdomen, chest shoulders, and arms). Children should get at least 60 minutes of activity every day.

We hope you’ll join us and donate at the register to help fund the health of our community. Heart disease remains the No. 1 killer of men and women in this country. The American Heart Association works every day to change that. They believe that everyone has a reason to live longer and healthier and enjoy more of life’s precious moments – and we agree! We’re proud to help our community find their reasons for giving and helping fund programs that are saving lives every day. Everyone has a reason to give. The Life Is Why We Give campaign asks, “Who’s your why?”  If you’re comfortable doing so, we would love to know who or what your reason is for supporting  the American Heart Association and their mission to build healthier lives, free of cardiovascular diseases and stroke.
