Feb. 1, 2013, marks the 10th Year of the American Heart Association's Go Red For Women® movement — 10 years of fighting to save women's lives from heart disease. While the progress has been significant, there's a long way to go. Here's why:
 
  • Heart disease is still the No. 1 killer of women, causing 1 in 3 deaths each year.
  • Heart disease kills more women than men, at an average rate of one death per minute.
  • Heart disease kills more women than all kinds of cancer combined.
Here in NW Ohio, we're ready to rise to the challenge and make this year a turning point in the fight against heart disease. We're ready to raise our voices and much-needed donations to fund vital research that can help save women's lives. And we're counting on you to join with us.
 

National Wear Red Day®
urges you to play your part. Here's how:
 
·         Wear red on Friday, February 1.
·         Help raise funds through donations and fundraisers for lifesaving educational programs
and the development of new treatments to fight heart disease.
·         Make your workplace, school or organization aware of heart disease, its deadly impact on women and how we can fight back.
·         Walk the talk by being physically active, eating a heart-healthy diet and learning about heart disease and its risk factors.
·         Invite others to get involved so we can advance further, faster.
