International Pageants has formed an incredible coalition with the American Heart Association’s Go Red For Women
to create nationwide awareness about the number one killer of women in the United States.
The American Heart Association formed Go Red For Women in 2004 as an initiative for women to take charge of their heart health. Cardiovascular
disease claims the lives of nearly 500,000 American women each year. The mission of Go Red For Women is to encourage awareness of heart disease among women, and also action to save more lives. The movement encompasses
the power women have to band together and collectively wipe out heart disease. It’s about knowing your risk and how
to live a heart healthy life, starting now.
“In 2010, the American Heart Association set a strategic goal of reducing death and disability from cardiovascular
disease and strokes by 20% while improving the cardiovascular health of all Americans by 20% by the year 2020.”
