Go Red for Women!

Did you know...                 
That heart disease is still the No. 1 killer of women, taking the life of 1 in 3 women each year?

Did you know…
That heart disease claims the lives of over 433,000 American women each year?

Did you know…
That we can make a difference?

The American Heart Association’s Go Red For Women® works every day to fund research and fight this killer so that more women can be saved. But they need our help. Please celebrate National Wear Red Day® on Friday, February 4, or any day to raise awareness about heart disease among women and the funds to ensure the research that could save a woman’s life never has to be denied.

The American Heart Association uses all revenues from local and national Go Red For Women activities, like National Wear Red Day, to support awareness, research, education and community programs to benefit women. These funds help women by offering educational programs, advancing women’s understanding about their risk for heart disease and providing tools and motivation to help women reduce their risk to protect their health.

How can you help?
  • Help raise funds through donations for lifesaving educational programs and the development of new treatments to fight heart disease.
  • Make your friends / readers aware of heart disease, its impact on women and how we can fight back.
  • Love YOUR heart by being physically active, eating a heart-healthy diet and being educated about heart disease and its risk factors.

This year I joined the local Circle of Red, a grassroots sisterhood committed to save lives.  The Circle of Red is a committed and passionate group of women who have the resources to significantly impact the community by providing a personal commitment to help find a cure for heart disease, the No. 1 killer of women.

I will be wearing red {specifically, rocking my red Tilda} and doing my part {online and in my hometown} to raise awareness.  Join me in spreading the word.  

Make it your mission to stop the No. 1 killer of women!
