Register today for our first annual Team Heart Pumping Heart Challenge, a virtual event taking place September 22-29th. Through the challenge, we are encouraging individuals to run, walk, cycle, swim, hike – do what it takes to pump your heart while raising funds to support Team Heart. Join our team today to help us with our goal to raise $30,000 and help fight rheumatic heart disease and bring sustainable cardiac care to Rwanda.

Get ready to pump your heart in honor of World Heart Day and to save lives in Rwanda. We are one TEAM!

Brick by Brick: Building a Cardiac Care Center in Kigali

Team Heart is a non-profit medical organization focused on bringing sustainable cardiac care to Rwanda. Our mission has four primary pillars: Excellence in Patient Care; Increased access to Specialized Cardiac Care; Awareness, Education, Training, and Evidenced Based Research; Foundational and Leadership Growth. Each year, we travel to Rwanda to perform screenings, heart operations and workshops with local Rwandan medical staff. We invite you to learn more about our mission, supporting our team, and volunteering.
