American Heart Association hosted its annual Go Red For Women Luncheon at the Grand Hyatt Hotel downtown to educate the community to improve their health while raising funds to support heart disease and stroke research.
While heart disease is a risk for all Americans, women are still at a greater risk. In fact, cardiovascular diseases cause one in three women’s deaths each year, killing approximately one woman every minute. Over the last 10 years, AHA has made remarkable progress through its Go Red for Women Campaign; however, there is still much work to do. Nearly 1,100 women are still dying each day.
We thank everyone for their support as we had 450 guests in attendance and raised over $226,000 for the movement.
Most women don’t notice the symptoms of heart disease until it’s too late. That’s why heart disease has been called the silent killer. But we won’t be silent. Heart disease is the No. 1 killer of women—killing more than all forms of cancer combined.
The American Heart Association’s Go Red For Women is the world’s largest network standing together to end heart disease. For more than a decade, we’ve led the fight to protect women’s hearts through research and education. Millions of women are uniting by wearing a red dress, our public symbol of the fight. The more women we mobilize to stop our No. 1 health threat, the more lives we can save.
We must not be silent. Tell every woman you know that heart disease is our No. 1 killer. Raise your voice at GoRedForWomen.org.
Together, we can end heart disease. How will you GO RED?
