Heart disease is the No. 1 killer of women in the U.S., taking the life of one in three women – almost one woman every minute. However, research shows that 80 percent of cardiac events in women are preventable and linked to diet, exercise and smoking. That’s why the American Heart Association’s Go Red For Women® is helping women speak up for their hearts and change this statistic by offering a free 12-week makeover, Go Red BetterU.

Locally, Samaritan Medical Center has agreed to sponsor the North Country BetterU Challenge, a 12-week immersion into nutrition, fitness and wellness. Ten lucky participants will be selected to go through the 12-week challenge. Each participant will receive:
  • Baseline & 12-week medical readings provided by Samaritan Medical Center
  • 3-month membership to the YMCA
  • Personal training at the YMCA
  • Nutrition advice from a Medical Professional
  • Supermarket shopping outing
  • Group support from other BetterU participants
Participants will be photographed before and after the 12-weeks, interviewed by media, asked to write about their experiences through a BetterU Blog and help us celebrate the program by attending the Heart Walk kick off in January 2014.

With Go Red BetterU, you’ll learn smart strategies and gain new information on improving and maintaining your health, along with the encouragement and advice of local and online coaches. Each week will focus on a different area to follow for a complete heart makeover. Live longer and stronger by taking 12 weeks to invest in your health.

Our Hearts. Our Choice. Choose a BetterU.
