Mr. Melbert Carl (Bob) Hillert Jr. 

Dr. Hillert was the founder of Côtes du Coeur, a friend, longstanding supporter and trailblazer for the American Heart Association. Over the course of its 30-year history, the annual event has raised more than $50 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.
