Let’s unite to prevent heart disease and stroke.
Our mothers, daughters, sisters and friends are at risk. Heart disease and stroke cause 1 in 3 deaths among women each year – more than all cancers combined. Fortunately, we can change that because 80 percent of cardiac events can be prevented with education and lifestyle changes.
Get informed about the risks of heart disease and stroke. Know the red flags. Know your heart health story. Go Red For Women inspires women to make lifestyle changes, mobilize communities, and shape policies to save lives. United, we are working to improve the health of women in your community.
It’s time to put our hearts into it and Go Red For Women, so please join us at this year’s luncheon.
Join us for the 2016 Go Red Luncheon that will take place on March 15th . Did you know that heart disease is the leading cause of death in the United States? And it is still the number one killer in women, nearly half a million women die each year at the rate of about one per minute.
The 2016 Go Red Luncheon is a life-changing experience that focuses on three areas to support the fight against heart disease: heightening awareness of the issue, creating a passionate call-to-action and generating funds to support education and research.
At this year’s Luncheon we are proud to honor two remarkable people who have made great strides in making a difference in the heart health of our community.
