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.”
