From the onset of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, the American Heart Association has been closely following the guidance from the CDC and state and local health officials on how best to proceed with upcoming events. The health and safety of our guests, volunteers, donors and staff continue to be our top priority. During these ever-changing times, the American Heart Association has made the decision to transition Côtes du Coeur to a virtual celebration.

Dr. Melbert Carl (Bob) Hillert Jr. 
October 30, 1946 – March 20, 2020

We’re saddened by the recent passing of Dr. Bob Hillert, a friend, longstanding supporter and trailblazer for the American Heart Association. Dr. Hillert was the founder of Côtes du Coeur, who succumbed to his battle with cancer. Over the course of its 28-year history, the annual event has raised more than $42 million for the Association’s mission. In his 30 years of involvement with the Association he held many leadership positions, including president of the Dallas Division’s Board of Directors. We are grateful for the relentless impact he made in the fight against heart disease and stroke.
