Right here in Linn County, heart disease and stroke are the #1 and #5 killers of women. Chances are you’ve lost someone you love to one or both of these diseases, and may have felt helpless to ease the emotional pain this type of loss creates.
That’s why the American Heart Association is working hard to reduce and, hopefully, eliminate these diseases. That’s also why the Circle of Red was created. Together we can prevent heart disease and stroke.
What is the Circle of Red?
An elite group of women who have the influence and resources to significantly impact our community by providing a personal $500 commitment to help find a cure for the No. 1 killer of women.
What benefits do I receive by joining this philanthropic group?
¨ Your dollars stay right here in Iowa, funding research grants needed to help find a cure for heart disease, stroke and other cardiovascular diseases.
¨ Increase awareness, education, and prevention. Of women who die, one in 29 die of breast cancer. One in every three women die of heart disease, stroke, and other cardiovascular diseases.
How will I be recognized as a Circle of Red member?
¨ One VIP seat and special recognition at the Go Red for Women luncheon on Friday, December 1, 2017
¨ Invitations to exclusive American Heart Association Circle of Red events
Join us at GoRedForWomen.org and at this year’s Go Red For Women luncheon!
