About the Christ Saves Hearts Scholarship
Every year we will award three scholarships to minority students in the Triangle area that have been impacted by heart disease. As we recognize a vast need in our community, we want to encourage and provide hope for our children. Our goal is to raise over $15,000 this year, so we can continue our efforts in advocacy, community outreach, and provide scholarships annually for high school and college students. We will continue to cultivate business, health, church, and community leaders from across the Triangle area of North Carolina, including individuals who are in support of creating a healthier community in which we live every day.
