One in three women will die of heart disease, that’s more than all cancers combined. As a woman, you have a powerful network of friends, business associates and family to help educate everyone on the importance of the Go Red Campaign.
My Dad had a heart attack and died in my arms when I was 15 years old. That was a life-changing moment for me. I am also a stroke survivor. Most people have personally been touched by heart disease & stroke. Together, we can take the steps to end this disease. .
We are planning a fantastic luncheon at the Balboa Bay Club on March 2nd and hope you can join us. Thank you for your interest and involvement in the Go Red for Women Campaign.
Go Red For Women needs you to shatter the silence by choosing to speak up about heart disease. Be part of the movement, make choices, Make it Your Mission to spread the word. By sharing this commitment with Go Red For Women, together we can help save lives. We hope you will be join us for the 8th Annual Go Red For Women Luncheon.
Your participation will benefit countless individuals who are touched by cardiovascular disease. We will gather to make it our mission to help save lives and empower women to take control of their heart health.
A woman at your table may have a story about how she survived heart disease and the changes she has made in her life to prevent it from ever happening again. Someone in your row at the breakout session may have found a way to eat baked, not fried, for her whole family. That exercise motivation you have wanted might come directly from someone you meet today, and that diet you have been searching for might be replaced with an inspiration to simply eat less and move more…and become a BetterU!
Together the women of Go Red can bring a voice to this silent killer to help save lives. We can listen to what our hearts are telling us, talk to our doctors, and spread the word to our friends and community about making the right choices and taking action in this lifesaving movement.
With heartfelt thanks,
Welcome to the 8th Annual Orange County Go Red For Women Luncheon! We’re delighted you are here and appreciate your interest in learning how you can advance health, stop heart disease and save women’s lives. That’s what the American Heart Association’s Go Red For Women® movement is all about.
Heart disease isn’t just a man’s problem. It’s a woman’s problem, too. In fact, it’s the No. 1 killer of women. And, tragically, far too few women realize their risk from this preventable disease. We need to raise women’s awareness of their risk and protect our mothers, daughters, sisters, friends and ourselves.
You can help, starting today. Here’s how:
First, take charge of your own heart health. Visit your doctor. Know your numbers (learn more at www.GoRedForWomen.org). You can improve your blood pressure, cholesterol and other numbers by making lifestyle changes. You’ll be healthier and look and feel better, too.
Second, join the American Heart Association in making it your mission to fight heart disease in women. Help spread the word that heart disease is women’s No. 1 killer. Share what you learn today with your family and members of your community. Tell five women you want them to live and we can help stop heart disease in our lifetime.
Third and last, consider making a contribution. Your donation today will make a difference in the lives of women here and across the country. You can help fund local and national Go Red activities that support awareness, research, education and community programs that benefit women.
Thank you again for being here. My hope is that you won’t leave today without committing to making a difference by joining the Go Red For Women movement — women everywhere need your help. Only one in five women believes that heart disease is her greatest health threat. We believe reducing risk and preventing heart disease starts with education — and you. There’s so much to do, and so much at stake.
With your commitment, we can help women and their families live longer, stronger lives. Thank you for your generous support.
