Go Red For Women: April 28, 2015


Go Red For Women is the American Heart Association’s nationwide movement to rally against heart disease while celebrating the energy and courage of women to overcome the threat of cardiovascular-related fatalities.  While heart disease is a danger to all Americans, females are actually at higher risk than men.

Each year, 1 in 3 women die of heart disease and stroke. But you can help change that!

Please join us at the Go Red For Women Luncheon and be part of a movement to help raise awareness and save more lives.

Where: Museum of Glass, 1801 Dock Street, Tacoma WA 

When: Tuesday, April 28 at 10:30 AM – 1:00 PM


The Go Red For Women movement provides women with tips and information on healthy eating, exercise, and risk factor reduction, such as smoking cessation, weight management, blood pressure control, and managing blood cholesterol levels.

Please contact your Pierce County American Heart Association at: 253-572-4996 or Rose.LeMay@heart.org

The Walking Season Kicks Off

Over 320 fun-loving walkers came out and joined us today at Wright Park to celebrate National Walking Day! This relaxing walk route was hosted by the American Heart Association and Downtown on the Go and it included a tour of the park by local experts. It was not only a scenic and healthy experience but educational as well!

Check out this link to read more about how our ninth annual National Walking Day was celebrated across ten Western States:



The American Heart Association recommends 40 minutes of aerobic exercise of moderate to vigorous intensity 3-4 times a week to lower risks for heart attack and stroke. The simplest, positive change you can make to effectively improve your heart health is to start walking. A walking program is flexible and boasts high success rates because people can stick with it. It’s easy for walking to become a regular and satisfying part of life.

Show your support for the benefits of walking and physical activity by joining us for the 2015 Heart and Stroke Walk on Saturday, October 3rd at the LeMay Car Museum in Tacoma.
