About This Activity

Ladies and gentlemen from across Montgomery are invited to put on their best RED outfit and dash, dance, walk or run a 5k to dash the myths about the No. 1 killer of women:  heart disease and stroke which kills more women than all types of cancer combined.  There is no bigger threat on women’s health than heart disease and stroke. Something must change and I am asking you to help.  Let’s ban together to lead our community in the lifesaving mission of Go Red and The American Heart Association.  The American Heart Association funds cutting-edge research in Alabama, currently totaling 4.1 million dollars. We’re at the forefront of new treatments and finding better ways to prevent heart disease and stroke. We believe this local research coupled with heightened awareness will make a dramatic impact in our state and since Alabama has the second highest death rate from cardiovascular disease in the entire country, dramatic is what we need.We are doing everything we can to fight heart disease in women. We are providing lifesaving information to women of all ages and ethnicities, we are increasing gender-focused medical research, and we provide a tight community of likeminded champions who have banded together to form an unstoppable army against heart disease in women. We have made a lot of strides in women’s heart health because of generous donations and the support of community leaders like you.
