2020 Northshore Go Red For Women
The Go Red for Women Luncheon continues to serve as the cornerstone event of the Go Red For Women movement in local communities. This empowering event focuses on preventing heart disease and stroke by promoting healthy lifestyles, building awareness and raising critically-needed funds to support research and education initiatives. Cardiovascular diseases, which include stroke, claim the life of a woman about every 80 seconds. We hope you will join us on our mission because about 80 percent of cardiovascular diseases may be prevented.
No additional volunteer opportunities at this time.

In 2008, The American Heart Association achieved the key metrics of their 2010 strategic goal which was to reduce coronary heart disease, stroke and risk by 25 percent.
The AHA exceeded the 25% reduction in mortality goals for coronary heart disease and stroke almost two years earlier than expected.
In 2010, the AHA adopted a new goal:
By 2020, to improve cardiovascular health of all Americans by 20 percent while reducing deaths from cardiovascular disease and stroke by 20 percent."Our goal is to move from a more reactive strategy to a more proactive one that focuses on improving health and quality of life.
