WHY: Heart disease is the No. 1 killer for women, yet only 55 percent of Americans realize this. Go Red for Women brings awareness and educates women about heart disease and ways to prevent it. Women who Go Red eat healthier diets, follow exercise routines, and influence others about heart health. Many women do not realize how common heart disease is. Nearly 500,000 American women are diagnosed with cardiovascular disease each year and do not know it. Participants in this event will be making a change by supporting Go Red for Women and bringing awareness to prevent heart disease.
