Did you know…
1 in every 3 women dies from heart disease each year?
Founded in 2004, Go Red has been providing women of all ages with information on how they can take charge of their destiny and live a heart healthy life to prevent heart disease.
As a predominantly female company, we have taken a special interest in women’s health, wellness and prevention. So, this week, Charm City Concierge went red!
Each day this past week, information on ways to live a heart healthy life was posted to our various social media outlets leading up to today – National Wear Red Day! If you missed it, check out our Facebook and Twitter pages or visit goredforwomen.org.
To sum up this week’s information, here is the take home message:
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 in 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. Raise your voice at GoRedForWomen.org
As women, we need to stick together. Go Red for Women decided to take a stand against Heart Disease. Will you?
