“I enjoy your emails and greatly appreciate your guidance and support. If it wasn't for your ongoing ideas and gentle pushing, I probably wouldn't have looked for new ways to push my limits, so I'd say you pulled me to the goal I set, when we began in May, your mission is accomplished, *:) At this point I'm fully committed to stick to the routine and even if I swap the walk days to spread them through the week move evenly, I'll maintain the level of exercise for sure.”

“Thank you for checking in with me. I recently joined a gym that is in walking distance from my house, which means no excuses! I have been going about 5 times a week for the last 2 weeks. I am striving to eat whole foods and minimize the processed foods. While I am not 100% perfect, I do not let a mistake get me down and get back on track as soon as I can. I have lost almost 10 lbs this month so this is definitely enough motivation for me to keep going! I love the food I'm eating and feel great! This program is really helping with the information it provides. I enjoy learning new things. Thank you!”
"Your support has been a great asset for me and it has helped me to stay accountable toward my health goals. I have been making some significant improvements, ranging from cutting out junk food, incorporating healthy snacks like baby carrots and trail mix throughout my workdays, eating more whole grain foods and now even eating more raw vegetables by eating salads more regularly, all the way to establishing a more consistent workout routine throughout the week, combining cardio and strength exercises. Your support definitely helped make all this happen and has allowed (and motivated) me to establish sustainable health habit routines.”

Why Go Red? Heart disease and stroke cause 1 in 3 deaths among women each year, killing approximately one woman every 80 seconds. Fortunately, we have the power to change that because 80 percent of cardiac and stroke events may be prevented with education and action.
Raise awareness and fund the fight against heart disease and stroke by creating your own FUNraising webpage today! By doing so you help support educational programs to increase women’s awareness and critical research to discover scientific knowledge about cardiovascular health.
Know Your Risk
Just because you feel fine doesn’t mean you aren’t at risk for heart disease. There are many factors that can increase a woman’s risk of heart disease, and they are much more than just the obvious factors like age or weight.
For example, Veronica Sanchez thought she was perfectly healthy, and had no idea her risk factors were so high until she suffered two heart attacks one day apart. Turns out she had a history of heart disease on both sides of her family which greatly increased her risk. She also had some unhealthy eating habits that needed to change. Since her recovery she has become a vocal spokesperson for Go Red For Women, and encourages women to assess their own risk of heart disease. As Veronica says it, “Being aware may just save your life.”
With heart disease, you may not get a second chance to win the battle. So the time to assess your risk is right now. Start by Knowing Your Numbers
