OUR PARTNERSHIP WITH THE AMERICAN HEART ASSOCIATION
One of the most important things we do is encourage women to live heart healthy lives. “Heart disease is the leading cause of death for women in the United States, killing 289,758 women in 2013—that’s about 1 in every 4 female deaths.” Our international organization partners with the American Heart Association’s Go Red for Women Movement – an initiative created to educate women about the threat of heart disease. Most people don’t know that women are three times more likely to die from heart disease than breast cancer. Our top mission is to raise awareness and funds to change these statistics.
