HEART AFTER DARK
February 23 | Mandarin Oriental Hotel
Heart After Dark is the after party following the annual DC Heart Ball gala. This black-tie event featured a cocktail reception followed by a live band, dancing, dessert, and drinks with attendees of the Heart Ball. The evening also included savory bite-sized snacks – a crowd favorite!
Zengo Logan Circle
PULSE Co-President Channing Muller hosted a Zengo ride to celebrate 5 healthy years since her second heart attack in 2012. The cycling event raised over $700 for the AHA!.
SIMPLE COOKING WITH HEART
YMCA Anthony Bowen
Making small changes in your diet is important to your heart health. PULSE members attended a “Simple Cooking with Heart” class at the YMCA to help start cooking at home. Cooking at home can be a daunting task, but a rewarding one for your diet and lifestyle!
Urban Boxing DC
Urban Boxing’s experienced trainers guided PULSE members through a 60-minute workout focusing on conditioning, strength training, and basic boxing techniques, including high-intensity cardiovascular exercises. Cardiovascular workouts are necessary for optimal heart health which is why PULSE DC works with local studios to host several mission events each year. The class raised $100 for the AHA!
SPEED NETWORKING HAPPY HOUR
Irish Whiskey Public House
For the July committee meeting, PULSE hosted a “speed networking” happy hour for members both new and old to get to know each other better, share why the AHA is meaningful to them, and strengthen PULSE as a group. Each member spent 3 minute speed rounds chatting, until the whole committee had a chance to connect.
LAWYERS HAVE HEART 10K
Lawyers Have Heart is Washington’s largest 10K race. Founded in 1991 as a way for the Washington legal community to unite annually in support of the American Heart Association, our PULSE team raised over $350 for the cause, and celebrated with brunch and a fun post-race party at the Harbour.
D.C. UNITED GAME
PULSE cheered on the home team in a 3-0 shut-out vs. the New England Revolution.
Kicking off with a “heart healthy” potluck tailgate outside the stadium, $9 of each ticket sold to the group was donated back to the American Heart Association.
VINYASA TO VINO
PULSE members and friends unwound with a feel-good vinyasa yoga session that then flowed into a wine tasting of Provision No. 14 wines. This total body “wine-down” experience was co-taught by our friends at Grip The Mat, with the wine tasting provided by our favorite Provision 14 bartender, Pablo.
