Grab your girlfriends and join the me along with American Heart Association and Edward Jones as we celebrate the power of women in the fight against heart disease and stroke with the Girls Night Goes Red event in St. Louis!
This exciting and free event will feature passionate stories of survival and hope, designed to inspire and empower you, and all the women in your life, to make healthier choices for your mind, body, and soul.
While you’re there, you will enjoy healthy and delicious hors d’oeuvres, a cash bar, and great prizes with appearances and demonstrations from local health vendors.
“Girls Night Goes Red” is designed to heighten awareness of heart disease as the number one killer of women. According to the American Heart Association, while 1 in 30 American women dies from breast cancer, one in three dies of cardiovascular disease, killing approximately one woman every minute.
Come join me for a fun night out as we strive to raise awareness in the issue of heart disease in women. Invite your female coworkers, neighbors, family, church members, and every other female you know. Be sure to wear your red!
The event is free, but registration is required. Take a look at the details below.
