Purchase your tickets today to attend the Hampton Roads Go Red for Women Luncheon on Friday, February 3rd, National Wear Red Day. For the first time in three years, the American Heart Association is coming together in person for the nation’s largest initiative on women’s heart health. We are Mothers. Sisters. Daughters. Wives. Partners. Friends. Warriors. Executives. Leaders. We are Women. Strong. Resilient. Relentless. Fierce. We are united by purpose and connected by passion, and we are flipping the script to ensure all women have the opportunity to live a long and healthy life. Since 2004, the Go Red for Women movement has educated millions of women about their No. 1 killer: cardiovascular disease. But now we face a new challenge; research shows that younger women and women of color are not aware that this threat is real.
The American Heart Association continues to innovate ways to ensure all women are aware of their heart disease risk and empower women to take control of their well-being. Good heart health is a journey, not a destination, and Go Red for Women wants to walk hand-in-hand with women through every age and every stage as a trusted health partner. They are also working tirelessly to accelerate science, advance public health policy, and engage more women in research and STEM – and it’s all thanks to supporters like you.
There are heroes in each of us, and together, we CAN eradicate heart disease and stroke in women.
