Our Mission 

The mission of the SVS Foundation is to optimize the vascular health and well-being of patients and the public through support of research that leads to discovery of knowledge and innovative strategies, as well as education and programs, to prevent and treat circulatory disease. 


Vascular Health Step Challenge

We are challenging you to walk 60 miles throughout September to represent the 60,000 miles of blood vessels in the human body. The inaugural  Vascular Health Step Challenge will amplify the importance of vascular health while also promoting healthy vascular health habits in communities across the country! 

Help us raise $60,000 to bring awareness of the benefits walking has for vascular health. Everyone is invited to sign up and can choose to participate individually or on a team. Funds raised will support the SVSF in providing fitness trackers for low-income patients to use while participating in supervised exercise therapy programs.
