San Francisco PULSE is an up-and-coming network of young professionals dedicated to engaging their peers in the American Heart Association’s mission to build healthier lives free of cardiovascular diseases and stroke.  The PULSE community focuses on promoting active lifestyles and heart-healthy habits, while also raising funds critical to further the reach and mission of the AHA. 

Last year, San Francisco PULSE raised over $60K to benefit the AHA and engaged over 500 people at its inaugural PULSE Ball.  This year, PULSE Committee Chair, Daniel Lee, Managing Director at First Republic, and Chair Elect, Mark White, Senior Research Biologist at Berkeley Lights Inc., have doubled their goal and expect to raise over $100K to benefit the AHA and engage over 1,000 young professionals in their mission.  They have created an inspiring movement that allows leading corporate, tech, social and medical communities to all join together to fight America’s #1 killer.
