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.
