American Heart Association Wants You to Go Red For Women in October
One in three women dies each year from cardiovascular disease and stroke, making it the No. 1 killer of women in the United States. Make a difference for women everywhere by attending the Go Red For Women on Oct. 12 at The Lincoln Marriott Cornhusker Hotel.
Top sponsors: Bryan Health; Cline Williams; Firespring; Madonna Rehabilitation Hospital; Nelnet; Olsson Associates and Union Bank & Trust.
Pacesetter sponsors: Ameritas; Assurity Life Insurance; Cornhusker Bank; HomeServices of Nebraska; Kutak Rock LLP and Wilderness Ridge.
10/11 News and 106.3 KFRX return as the media sponsors. Matt McKay and Lindsey from KFRX will host the event.
Beginning at 4:30 p.m., and after information booths and an electronic silent auction, the night continues with a plated dinner, an inspiring survivor story and recognition of the BetterU Makeover Challenge participants.
Individual tickets and tables are available now at www.heart.org/lincolngored. Event sponsorships are also available.
Proceeds benefit the lifesaving mission of the American Heart Association. Last year, the Association invested nearly $1.7 million in 10 new and continuing studies in Nebraska alone.
The Go Red For Women movement, nationally presented by Macy’s and CVS Health, is a part of the American Heart Association’s national movement to end heart disease and stroke in women.
The event aims to raise awareness and change the startling statistics. Heart disease kills more women than all types of cancer combined.
