(KAKE) -

Millions of people are at risk of suffering a heart attack or stroke, but the American Heart Association is hoping to change that.  The organization funds innovative research for new treatments while providing programs and services for survivors and families.

"We try to do everything we can to get people to live healthy lifestyles to prevent the number one killer in the United State, which is heart disease," said Danielle Lamb  of the American Heart Association.

Lamb says every dollar raised can make a big difference.  Fundraisers like the heart walk and heart ball make it all possible.

"We raised over $250,000 for our mission and its a wonderful fun high-class exciting event where you get to get dressed up and have a really great time for a great cause," Lamb said.

The American Heart Association was honored by DeVaughn James Injury Lawyers with a $500 Wins for Kansas grant.
