After losing his father to a heart attack at age 10, Bobby Palmieri decided to pay it forward. He sold 1,000 red silicone bracelets with the phrase “Have A Heart” on them, raising $2,000 for the American Heart Association. He wanted to help prevent other families from having to go through the same thing.
Even years later, his life is still affected by the loss of his dad. That’s why he decided to revisit the Have A Heart concept. Now 19, Bobby is a student at Quinnipiac University and creating his own scholarship program with the help of the American Heart Association.
