Rosie stopped by Texas Mutual Insurance Company and chatted with Marisela Cortes about the Go Red Luncheon.
Fifteen years ago, Go Red For Women was born as a campaign to raise awareness among women about their great health threat – heart disease.
Go Red For Women provides a platform for women and their families to lead healthier lives, and drive collective action for community transformation. It’s not just about wearing red; it’s not just about sharing heart health facts.
How much are women at risk for heart disease?
Heart disease is often thought to be more of a problem for men. However, it’s the most common cause of death for women in the United States.
About 1 in 16 women 20 years or older have coronary heart disease, so it’s really important to eat right, exercise, watch your stress levels, and monitor for any signs and symptoms of heart problems.
What are some of the details of the event?
It’s Friday, February 29th at the JW Mariott on 2nd street. You still have time to register, donate, volunteer and sponsor!
Come out, support the cause, help educate yourself and others … and don’t forget to wear red!
