Living Heart Foundation


Since 2003, the Living Heart Foundation (LHF) has provided former players with heart and comprehensive health screenings to educate our membership on the risks of cardiovascular disease and obesity. The LHF has identified risks in countless players and ultimately saved lives through yearly screenings across the country.

In 2018, the LHF and PAF introduced this same state of the art services not only to form players but also spouses. Together, we are dedicated to serving as many individuals as possible to provide them with the knowledge to live their healthiest.
