MYRTLE BEACH, S.C. (WBTW) — Go Red for Women is the American Heart Association’s signature women’s initiative.
It’s 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.
It’s about women making a commitment to stand together with Go Red and taking charge of their own heart health as well as the health of those they can’t bear to live without.
Making a commitment to your health isn’t something you have to do along either, so grab a friend or a family member and Be The Beat.
Here are some ways to support the women in your life:
- Light your building red with gel filters or red bulbs (cost estimate: $6-$50)
- Consider CPR training
- Wear red every Friday during February and send photos of you supporting Heart Month by to the photo gallery on this page
- Spread awareness. Encourage employees and co-workers to share a fact about how CPR saves lives
