Heart Association's Life Is Why logo

Pilot Company is kicking off American Heart Month with its annual round-up campaign, encouraging guests to stop at one of their participating locations to support heart health.

This is the sixth year Pilot Company has supported the American Heart Association's Life Is Why campaign – inspiring guests to celebrate their reasons to live healthier, longer lives by donating at participating Pilot, Flying J or One9 Fuel Network travel centers throughout the month of February. This year, the company is also advocating heart health and safety among its 30,000 team members, providing virtual, hands-only CPR training, resources to find nearby CPR classes, virtual cooking classes, and other health and wellness tips.

Participating Flying J travel centers in Canada will be extending their support of Heart Month throughout February, with donations benefiting the Heart and Stroke Foundation of Canada.

Pilot Company's fundraising initiatives include:

  • Paper Hearts: $1, $3, and $5 paper hearts will be available for purchase at participating travel centers all of February to benefit American Heart Association in the U.S. and Heart and Stroke Foundation in Canada. 100% of the proceeds will go directly to each organization.
  • Pin-Pad Round Up or Donation: During February, guests can round up their purchase to the nearest whole dollar or elect to donate other amounts on the pin-pad during checkout to the American Heart Association at participating U.S. travel centers or the Heart & Stroke in participating Canada.
