Go Red For Women Saves Over 620K lives!

Posted on Feb 04, 2015 by Maggie LaBarbera

Go Red For Women.  Pull out your red outfit and wear it with pride.  

It has made a difference.  The American Heart Association discovered that heart disease killed more women than men.  And it killed more women that all the cancers combined.  I know I was surprise when I learned that fact.  

But this movement that is celebrated to raise awareness of this deadly disease in women has been making a difference.  Heres how:

  • 34% fewer women now die from heart disease.
  • More than 627,000 women’s lives have been saved.
  • Nearly 90% of participants made healthy lifestyle changes.
  • 37% have lost excess weight.
  • More than half now exercise more.
  • 60% now eat healthier diets.
  • 43% have had their cholesterol checked.
  • Women completing Go Red Heart Check-ups has increased from 127,227 to 1,960,704.
  • Annual Go Red luncheons/events has grown from 65 to 1,377

Nourish Thought for the Day:  

Campaigns work because people take the time to participate.
