American Heart Association Gym With The Biggest Heart Event

Workout Date: Saturday, December 12th

Location: Each participating Gym

Cause: Benefitting the American Heart Association of Middle Tennessee through the 2021 Heart Gala Late Party.

The Middle Tennessee Heart Gala Late Party is designed to spark awareness, compassion and a deeper understanding of the nation’s no. 1 and no. 5 killers – cardiovascular diseases and stroke. It is an opportunity to celebrate advances in the fight, celebrate the lives of survivors, and unite our community

toward a healthier, happier future. Corporate, social, medical, and philanthropic members of the community are joined together to advocate, support, and directly impact the mission of the American Heart Association.

Cost: $10 donation per participant/athlete – Using Mobile Cause Late Party website, please be sure to select the gym you will be representing. Gyms will not need to collect or keep track of funds – we will use the Mobile Cause Website to handle all tracking. Participants are welcome and encouraged to make donations at a higher amount than the $10 buy-in.
