The Who’s on the Move, Non Profit Minute is a quick, two-minute interview in support of the amazing impact that local non profits have on our communities.

We would like to thank our sponsors of this video series:

Lizzie Smith, Director of Development, American Heart Association

Heart disease is the No. 1 killer worldwide, and stroke ranks second globally. Even when those conditions don’t result in death, they cause disability and diminish quality of life. The American Heart Association (AHA) seeks a world free of cardiovascular diseases and stroke.

Their size and scope has produced a deep impact. They have invested more than $4.5 billion in research, more than any U.S. nonprofit organization.

Lizzie Smith, who at age four had open heart surgery, is now the Director of Development at the AHA and gearing up for the annual Midlands Heart Walk on Saturday, March 27. You can find out more about the Heart Walk at
