Go Red For Women Promotes Heart Health
The American Heart Association will host its annual Lincoln Go Red For Women (www.heart.org/lincolngored) on Thursday, November 1. Themed “The Queen of Hearts”, the event is part of the Go Red For Women movement that encourages local women to take charge of their heart health by making it a top priority so they can live stronger, longer lives. Guests will take part in silent and live auctions, as well as a heart-healthy dinner program with a story of a local woman personally affected by heart disease.
The American Heart Association’s Go Red For Women movement uncovers the truth about heart disease – an often silent, hidden and misunderstood killer – so that all women can share the truth. Heart disease is the No. 1 killer of women in America today. Stroke is the fourth leading cause of death for females and the leading cause of serious, long-term disability. More than one in three females has some form of cardiovascular disease taking the lives of more than a half million women every year – more than the next FOUR causes of death combined.
Tickets for the Lincoln Go Red For Women are available at www.heart.org/lincolngored. Go Red For Women is sponsored nationally by Macy’s and CVS Health.
