Lauren Lindberg is the 12 year old chair for the Homeschoolers Act 4 Heart Health and a proud American Heart Association fundraiser. She first became involved with the American Heart Association in second grade when her school held a Jump Rope for Heart event. Lauren’s grandfather passed away when her mom was just 10 years old, so raising money for heart health awareness is a subject close to her heart. She often says “Although we can’t save mine, maybe we can save another little girl’s grandpa”. Ever since participating in Jump Rope for Heart, she has become more and more involved with the organization. Lauren began homeschooling in 2014 and missed being involved in Jump Rope for Heart; this is when the idea for Homeschoolers Act 4 Heart Health was created. She hopes you will join her in the initiative to spread heart healthy messages to families around the Nation.
