GRFW Screened Wear "red" and join us at the 2014 Fort Wayne Go Red For Women Luncheon on Thursday, November 13th, at the Allen County War Memorial Coliseum..

We are celebrating improvements in women's heart health with Go Red For Women® - the American Heart Association’s national movement to end heart disease and stroke. We are committed to the fight, for  as long as it takes.

Fort Wayne Go Red For Women BetterU Health Makeover Challenge
Twenty area women will be selected to participate in the 12-week challenge that begins August 22, 2014. Participants will receive free wellness screenings, medical consultations, coaching from personal trainers and dieticians, plus additional resources to help them make healthy changes to their lives. Sponsored in part by PPG Cardiology. Applications are closed.

Only one in five American women believe that heart disease is her greatest health threat.  This unfortunate reality has a lot to do with why the statistics on women and heart disease are so unsettling: 
  • One out of three women dies from heart disease; this is about one woman per minute
  • Since 1984 more women than men have died of heart disease and stroke.
  • 43 million American women are currently living with cardiovascular disease

Helping women overcome the challenges they face in achieving and maintain good heart health is vital to the overall health of our community.

We greatly appreciate the generous support of all our sponsors, volunteers, auction item donors and attendees.
