Hundreds of local women are pledging to fight heart disease at the 2017 Akron Go Red For Women Luncheon.   Did you know that heart disease is the leading cause of death for women in the United States? It kills nearly half a million women each year at the rate of about one per minute. They are our sisters, mothers, daughters, friends, neighbors and colleagues.  

Despite the statistics, there is hope. Inside every woman is the power to live a longer, stronger life. The American Heart Association’s Go Red For Women® movement seeks to provide women with the tools and resources they need to reduce their risk for heart disease and stroke.
The Akron Go Red For Women Luncheon presents area women with the opportunity to support the fight against heart disease and stroke in women by heightening their awareness of the issue, by igniting a passion to advocate for their own health and by generating funds to support women's heart and stroke education and research. 

'Live Well & Prosper' is the luncheon theme for 2017.  Nationally recognized financial advisor Carina Diamond of SS&G Wealth will show women the importance of not just being financially healthy, but also physically healthy.  She will tie the two themes together in a fun, educational and interactive talk.  Rebecca Sweet of Viva Dance Studios in Cleveland will engage the audience in heart healthy activities and Latin dance.

Be sure to take your seat with other women (and men) as we speak up together to beat the No. 1 killer of women.
