Go Red for Women!

I mentioned in February that I joined the Circle of Red. The Circle of Red is a committed and passionate group of women who devote their resources in an attempt to significantly impact the community by providing a personal commitment to help find a cure for heart disease, the No. 1 killer of women.

A few weeks back was our local luncheon and it was a fabulous day -- just seeing the room filled with women dressed in red and devoted to a unified cause! 

This is our official Circle of Red promo picture. I'm not 6 feet tall but was sitting closest to the camera. Truly, I should know better. And yes, that is my red Tilda from Lesley Evers. Love that dress and received loads of compliments when I wore it again to the Go Red Luncheon {pictured below}.  

Such a wonderful group of friends!

I'm blogging this out again to remind you all to that heart disease can affect women of any age. Now is the time to start heart-healthy habits! I committed to informing at least 5 women of the steps we can all take to maintain our heart health. If my 5 women tell just 5 more who tell just 5 more, well you see how quickly we can make a difference.

Join me in taking these 5 steps towards maintaing heart health:
1. Don't smoke,
2. Eat well,
3. Exercise,
4. Watch your weight, and
5. Visit your doctor regularly

Top all that off with a glass or two of red wine on occasion {in moderation, of course} and you are on your way to maintaining your heart health!

Will you join me and pass these 5 preventative steps along to 5 women you know?  Let's see what a difference we can make!
