Welcome to the Wilmington Go Red for Women Luncheon! We’re delighted you are here and appreciate your interest in learning how you can advance health, stop heart disease and save women’s lives. That’s what the American Heart Association’s Go Red For Women® movement is all about.
Heart disease isn’t just a man’s problem. It’s a woman’s problem, too. In fact, it’s the No. 1 killer of women. And, tragically, far too few women realize their risk from this preventable disease. We need to raise women’s awareness of their risk and protect our mothers, daughters, sisters, friends and ourselves.
You can help, starting today. Here’s how:
First, take charge of your own heart health. Visit your doctor. Know your numbers (learn more at www.GoRedForWomen.org). You can improve your blood pressure, cholesterol and other numbers by making lifestyle changes. You’ll be healthier and look and feel better, too.
Second, join the American Heart Association in making it your mission to fight heart disease in women. Help spread the word that heart disease is women’s No. 1 killer. Share what you learn today with your family and members of your community. Tell five women you want them to live and we can help stop heart disease in our lifetime.
Third and last, consider making a contribution. Your donation today will make a difference in the lives of women here and across the country. You can help fund local and national Go Red activities that support awareness, research, education and community programs that benefit women.
Thank you again for being here. My hope is that you won’t leave today without committing to making a difference by joining the Go Red For Women movement — women everywhere need your help. Only one in five women believes that heart disease is her greatest health threat. We believe reducing risk and preventing heart disease starts with education — and you. There’s so much to do, and so much at stake.
With your commitment, we can help women and their families live longer, stronger lives. Thank you for your generous support.
Chief Executive Officer
American Heart Association
Hi, I'm Mert Robinson, a proud volunteer supporting the American Heart Association. In addition, I again serve as the 2013 Go Red for Women Committee Silent Auction Co-Chair.
You may or may not be aware that heart disease is the #1 killer of women and stroke is the fourth leading cause of death in all Americans, but remains the #1 disabler. My immediate family has had both heart attack and stroke.
The American Heart Association recognizes these important issues through their Go Red for Women initiative. Go Red provides educational and informative messages about how to keep your heart healthy which will, in turn, combat these dreadful statistics. Moreover, the program assists everyone - even the caregiver - through a "BetterU" website that keeps you motivated and on track to a better life.
Our ability to make an impact on the lives of women with the Go Red for Women platform is dependent on your help and philanthropy. Simply put, your return on investment will help save lives!
We thank you in advance for your support.
Join Mert Robinson and Make it Your Mission to help in the fight against heart disease in women.
