Will You Go Red For Women?

Oct 02, 2015 02:33PM ● Published by Audrey Sellers

Here’s a stat that may surprise you: Nearly 35 percent of Tarrant County-area deaths are attributed to cardiovascular disease, according to the American Heart Association of Tarrant County. Since 1924, the organization has been working to keep people safe from heart disease and stroke through education, support, research and events.

The American Heart Association’s Go Red For Women is the world’s largest network of women standing together to fight the No. 1 killer of women: heart disease.

At this morning’s “Breakfast in Red,” Southlake Style’s Director of Advertising, Nicole Tesoriero, stood with others to help save women’s lives from heart disease. 

Watch for these heart attack warning signs:

·      Uncomfortable pressure, squeezing, fullness or pain in the center of your chest

·      Pain or discomfort in one or both arms, the back, neck, jaw or stomach

·      Shortness of breath

·      Breaking out in a cold sweat, nausea or lightheadedness

Women are more likely than men to experience symptoms other than chest pain – particularly shortness of breath, nausea, vomiting, and back or jaw pain. If you experience any of these symptoms, call 911.

Want to get involved with Go Red For Women in Tarrant County? There are many ways to speak red:

Become a sponsor for the Go Red For Women Campaign. Sponsorships start at $5,000 and can be customized to meet your marketing needs. 

Join the Circle of Red. These individuals or families have contributed $2,500 or more to finding a cure for heart disease.

Donate to the Go Red Silent Auction. Consider giving tickets to sporting events or performing arts programs, or unique red items.

Host a Go Red Fundraiser or invite your company to Go Red. February is National Heart Month, and you can help raise awareness.

The 2015-2016 Tarrant County Go Red Luncheon is February 26, 2016, at the Hilton Ft. Worth. Will you Go Red For Women? Learn more by visiting GoRedForWomen.org, or contact jasmin.holmstrup@heart.org or 817.698.5454.
