The American Heart Association’s Go Red For Women movement encourages women to take action to reduce those numbers, and on Sunday, February 3, 2013, we are asking you to join other faith-based organizations in the fight against heart disease.
February is American Heart Month. In previous years, women have worn red clothing or a Red Dress pin to show their support of the Go Red For Women movement (a national movement to increase awareness of heart disease in women. This year, we are asking you to do the same and to take it one step further by sharing the message of heart health with your congregation.
As the leader of a faith-based organization, God has empowered you to share the Good News. And part of that is sharing life-saving health information with your members. So we are providing materials to help you encourage individuals to:
- Wear red on Sunday, February 3, 2013.
- Join the fight against heart disease and ask every woman in your congregation to sign up for Go Red For Women.
- Take the Go Red Heart Check-Up, our online risk assessment tool at goredforwomen.org.
- Help your members and their families adopt healthier lifestyles.
