The American Heart Association has named Andrew and Ashley Ladebauche of Reliance Partners, as chair of the Heart of Chattanooga campaign. In this role, Mr. and Mrs. Ladebauche are focused on driving equitable health for every member of the community and raising funds to support the work of the organization through the Chattanooga Heart Ball.
“Heart disease and stroke continue to be the number one killer in our community and across the United States. Our hope is that through efforts like the Heart of Chattanooga and Heart Ball, we can not only raise awareness but much needed funds for critical life-saving research, education and impactful local projects,” said Ashley Ladebauche.
Mr. and Mrs. Ladebauche have recruited an executive leadership team and will honor local heart survivor Chad Eichelberger at the 2022 Chattanooga Heart Ball. The Heart Ball unites the community in celebrating progress toward equitable health and honoring survivors of heart disease and stroke.
“The American Heart Association is honored to have Andrew and Ashley’s passion and leadership to help raise critical funds and advance the science that will lead to longer, healthier lives for all,” said Emily Niespodziany, executive director of the American Heart Association – Chattanooga.
The dollars raised by the Heart of Chattanooga campaign fund the mission of the American Heart Association to be a "relentless force for a world of longer, healthier lives while supporting priority issues such as hypertension control and tobacco use in teens."
These issues have been selected by the Chattanooga American Heart Association board of directors to support the Association’s 2024 Health Equity Impact Goal, reducing barriers to health care access and quality.
This year’s Chattanooga Heart Ball is sponsored by Reliance Partners, Horizon Stone and Vascular Institute of Chattanooga.
