Help Prevent Heart Disease Today!

Lily's Kids Inc. A Non-profit Organization for Children is committed to ensuring that all children have a healthy start in life. Our primary focus is the prevention and awareness of heart disease in children, young adults, and their families. Our Heart Yourself Program is a fun interactive program focusing on the adoption of healthy lifestyle behaviors known to help prevent heart disease and improve overall health through healthy eating, not smoking and physical activity. We believe that by instilling these values we can help not only our generation but future generations.

LKI is a public charity with tax-exempt 501(c)(3) status and was established in 2007 in Connecticut by Lily Gagliardi while in college as a result of her struggle with a congenital heart condition.
