Going Red

HEARTFUL SUPPORT: Everyone was seeing red AND wearing red at the kickoff for Go Red! For Women. Joining the Honorable Mayor Bill LaFortune (far right) were Kickoff Host and Presenting Sponsor Jackie Cooper Imports Managing Partner Greg Kach, American Heart Association Executive Director Mandy Leemhuis and Go Red! Chair Ann LeGere. The Go Red For Women campaign is a movement to empower women with the knowledge that cardiovascular disease is their No. 1 killer, more than the next seven causes of death combined. Each year it claims the lives of more than 500,000 women. Go Red encourages women of all ages to better understand their symptoms and warning signs and to take charge of their cardiovascular health. The Go Red For Women Luncheon will be held on Thursday, May 5 at the Doubletree Downtown. For information call 918.747.8254 or visit www.americanheart.org.
