Go Red for Women Campaign
Next month is going to be a heart month as you are going to notice a lot of people wearing red for the “Go Red For Women” campaign. It is going to be a day where people commit to stand together and take charge of their heart health.
The American Heart Association’s Go Red for Women Luncheon will allegedly be held at the Ritz Carlton St. Louis on February 7.
Go Red For Women campaign was started fifteen years ago in order to raise awareness among women about their great health threat – heart disease. Gradually, the campaign grew into a mass movement – a movement that not only brought together thousands of women annually but also it became the trusted, passionate, relevant force for change to alleviate heart disease and stroke all across the world.
This campaign provides a unique platform for women and their families to help them lead healthier lives, and also it drives collective action for community transformation. Well, the campaign is not just about wearing red; and it is also not about sharing heart health facts. In fact, it’s about:
· Providing women with opportunities to prioritize and take charge of their own health;
· Building communities supporting and providing access to healthy choices;
· Demanding equal access to healthcare for all women and their respective families;
· And increasing women in STEM in upcoming generations.
This luncheon allegedly serves as the cornerstone event of the Go Red For Women movement in local communities. This empowering event primarily focuses on preventing heart diseases and stroke by building awareness, promoting healthy lifestyles, and raising critically-needed funds to support research and education initiatives. Cardiovascular diseases, which include stroke said to claim the life of a woman every 80 seconds.
So join the campaign and become part of biggest health movement in the world, the mission of the movement is to help prevent 80 percent of cardiovascular diseases.
