Go Red For Women is the American Heart Association’s solution to save women’s lives. Too many women die each year because they are unaware that heart disease is their No. 1 killer. One in three women suffers in silence, and almost one woman dies every minute of this largely preventable disease.
This year, Go Red is asking women to bring a voice to this silent killer – speak up to save lives.
“Thanks to the participation of millions of people across the country, the color red and the red dress have become linked with creating awareness of heart disease in women,” said Jacqueline Isherwood, executive director of the American Heart Association, Toledo, “Go Red For Women is channeling its energies and resources to challenge real women nationwide to discover their personal heart health risk by taking the online Go Red Heart CheckUp. Go Red provides tools and information women need to protect themselves and their loved ones.”
The Toledo Museum of Art has revamped its public tours, creating four new
series of guided tours. Designed to give visitors an insider’s view of the Museum’s internationally known collections, each tour is led by a museum docent.
The new free tours, which started Jan. 3, include:
The Toledo Walleye held the first annual “Mascot Mania” night Jan. 10 at the
Lucas County Arena. The mascots took part in a first intermission meet-and-greet with their fans on the concourse and in the second intermission, they teamed up and took each other on in Mascot Dodge Ball.
Teams included JJ Jaguar (Owens Community College); Wendy (Wendy’s); T.C. Hops (Toledo Children’s Hospital); Clementine the Newshound (Toledo Blade); Muddevious, Muddonna and Muddy (Muddy Toledo Mud Hens) and The Gray Wolf (Lourdes College); Derrick the Oiler (University of Findlay); The Frickin’ Chicken (Fricker’s); Uncle Vito (Vito’s Pizza); Muddiva (Toledo Mud Hens); CatTrick and Spike (Toledo Walleye).
In a hard-fought battle, the mascots were eliminated one-by-one until only one remained. In the end, Clementine the Newshound took the title of Toledo Walleye Mascot Dodge Ball Champion of 2010. All of the remaining mascots claim that 2011 will be their year.
The Toledo Walleye host the Johnstown Chiefs Jan. 17 at 5:30 p.m. the Lucas County Arena. Call 419-725-wall or visit www.toledowalleye.com for more information.
