Support Go Red For Women by participating in National Wear Red Day® on Friday, February 5, 2016 and donating to help fund research during American Health Month. Coldwell Banker D’Ann Harper, REALTORS® is proud to supporting this important cause that encourages awareness of the issue of women and heart disease.
Why Go Red? Heart disease and stroke cause 1 in 3 deaths among women each year, killing approximately one woman every 80 seconds. Fortunately, we can change that because 80 percent of cardiac and stroke events may be prevented with education and action. That’s why this year we are asking that you wear red on National Wear Red Day® and Donate to Go Red For Women. By doing so you help support educational programs to increase women’s awareness and critical research to discover scientific knowledge about cardiovascular health.
And don’t forget to make your heart health a priority. Schedule your Well-Woman Visit, a prevention check-up to review a woman’s overall health so her doctor can measure blood pressure, check cholesterol and look for signs of heart disease, stroke and other illnesses. Then encourage others through your social channels to do the same using the hashtags, #GoRedWearRed and #WellWomenVisit.
Visit your office administrator to make a small donation of $5, or any amount is appreciated. With your contribution we will hang a heart displaying name to share the generosity and hope for saving lives.
1 in 3 women die of heart disease and stroke each year. So we encourage you to join movement to end heart disease and stroke in women because it’s not just a man’s disease. Here’s what it means to Go Red:
G: GET YOUR NUMBERS
Ask your doctor to check your blood pressure and cholesterol.
O: OWN YOUR LIFESTYLE
Stop smoking, lose weight, exercise, and eat healthy.
It’s up to you. No one can do it for you.
R: REALIZE YOUR RISK
We think it won’t happen to us, but heart disease kills one of three women.
E: EDUCATE YOUR FAMILY
Make healthy food choices for you and your family.
Teach your kids the importance of staying active.
D: DON’T BE SILENT
Tell every woman you know that heart disease is our No. 1 killer.
