About Go Red for Women
The American Heart Association’s signature initiative, Go Red for Women®, is a comprehensive platform designed to increase women’s heart health awareness and serve as a catalyst for change to improve the lives of women globally. While nearly 80 percent of cardiac events can be prevented, cardiovascular disease is the leading cause of death in women, claiming the lives of 1 in 3 women.
For 16 years, Go Red for Women has encouraged awareness. The movement harnesses the energy, passion, and power of women to band together and collectively wipe out heart disease. It challenges them to know their risk for heart disease and take action to reduce their personal risk. It also gives them the tools they need to lead a heart-healthy life.
The Go Red for Women movement is nationally sponsored by CVS Health, with additional support from national cause supporters.
Losing one woman to heart disease and stroke is too many.
The Go Red for Women experience continues to be the cornerstone of the Go Red for Women movement in local communities. This empowering gathering focuses on preventing heart disease and stroke, sharing stories of people impacted by cardiovascular disease, and raises critically needed funds to save more lives.
Since 2004, the Go Red for Women movement has educated millions of women as to their No. 1 health threat: cardiovascular disease. But now we face a new challenge, younger women and women of color are not aware that this threat is real. We continue to innovate ways to ensure all women are aware of their greatest health threat, their risks and what they can do to reduce them. Good health is a journey, not a destination, and we want to walk hand in hand with women throughout their lifetimes as their trusted wellness partner.
Go Red for Women has evolved into a global movement and is a driving force in the world of health equity. We accelerate science, advance public health policy, and address the multitude of gender and racial gaps for women in research, healthcare and more, all thanks to supporters like you.
