Heart disease is the No. 1 killer of women. In fact, 1 in 30 women die of breast cancer, but about 1 in every 3 women will die of heart disease, stroke, and other cardiovascular diseases; 1 every 80 seconds! Despite these staggering facts, only a small percentage of women consider heart disease a health threat. We have set out to change this perception and change these statistics. The BetterU Challenge will encourage women to live a healthier lifestyle through awareness about the importance of heart health, showing how we can save our own lives, as well as the lives of the women we love.
Simply complete application and submit it by January 22nd deadline to:

Go Red for Women celebrates the energy, passion and power we have as women to band together to wipe out heart disease and stroke. It’s time for a BetterU!
