Heart disease is the leading cause of death among women. One in every four women will die of heart disease or stroke – terrifying!! The Go Red for Women Seattle movement is here to raise awareness, raise money and continue the research on how to prevent and help people all around the world. I have been volunteering with the American Heart Association for the last six or so years and have LOVED meeting all of these wonderful people and will continue to support their cause forever – because without women’s health, WHAT do we have?!
Last week was the Go Red Luncheon where they had a silent auction, several rooms with activities to promote health, massage stations to keep the stress away, yoga areas because stretching is the best, you could learn about food and even sample healthy smoothies, talk with doctors and nurses about your cholesterol and blood pressure all while looking beautiful thanks to the lipstick station by Estee Lauder!
Here are a few of the images from the event, if you haven’t been a guest you should really consider it for next year – help spread the word!
