Go Red for Women, Feb. 7

The American Heart Association’s Go Red For Women movement in Northwest Ohio is asking all women and those who love them to celebrate National Wear Red Day on Friday, February 7, 2014.
 

Heart disease is the No. 1 killer of women – killing more women than all forms of cancer combined. Most women don’t notice the symptoms of heart disease until it’s too late, which is why heart disease has been called the silent killer. But we won’t be silent.

The American Heart Association’s Go Red For Women is asking all women to Go Red by wearing red, living a healthy lifestyle and speaking red by spreading the message that heart disease is killing our mothers, daughters, sisters, and friends. 

For more than a decade, millions of women have united to raise their voices about this silent killer. While we’ve made remarkable progress, nearly 1,100 women are still dying each day. But, with your help, many more lives can be saved by. You can:

Go Red by wearing RED on National Wear Red Day, Friday, February 7, 2014. Show the world you are part of a movement that’s aimed at raising awareness about women’s No. 1 killer.

• Join Go Red For Women. Visit GoRedForWomen.org to learn how you can get involved.

• Go Red by speaking red and sharing information about heart disease prevalence, symptoms and prevention with your friends and family. Keep the women in your life informed about how they can make heart healthy lifestyle choices and reduce their risk for heart disease.

• Raise your voice and sharing how you or your loved ones have overcome heart disease is the strongest action you can take. Go Red For Women is encouraging all women who have been impacted by heart disease to speak red by telling their personal stories of diagnosis, treatment and survival against women’s No. 1 killer.

• Help Go Red For Women end heart disease in women by making a donation to fund critical, women-related research and education.

“For ten years, women have been fighting heart disease individually and together,” said Kali Wulff, Special Events Director of the Northwest Division of the American Heart Association. “More than 627,000 women’s lives have been saved, but the fight is far from over. Go Red For Women is about much more than wearing red. It’s about living a longer, stronger life and encouraging your love ones to do the same.”

So far, joining in the America Goes Red campaign in Toledo this February and going red are Mercy, ProMedica Fostoria, ProMedica St. Lukes, Interrupt Marketing, and Wood County Hospital.
