The Minnesota Twins, in partnership with Twins' legend Rod Carew and his wife Rhonda, announced today the creation of a year-long campaign to raise funds for the American Heart Association, as well as raise awareness for heart disease and heart failure. The Heart of 29 campaign honors the Carews' wish to assist the American Heart Association following the Baseball Hall of Famer's recent, major heart attack and subsequent surgery. Carew had an LVAD, or left ventricular assist device, implanted during the surgery, and is awaiting the possible need for a heart transplant.
Sponsored by the Minnesota Twins Community Fund
