DES MOINES, Iowa — This weekend Iowa First Lady Chris Branstad will be honored for her work with the American Heart Association.
Branstad has been named the Volunteer of the Year.
She has been a longtime supporter of the association and for the past two years has served as chair of the Circle of Red, recruiting 75 members, and raising more than $50,000.
The American Heart Association says thanks to Branstad’s work, more women know heart disease and stroke are their greatest health risk.
Branstad will receive the honor Saturday at the Heart Ball.
