Go Red for Women is crucial in driving local support to fund life saving research and to educate women. Though we have made great strides in the advancement of women's cardiovascular health, we still have far to go. We need your help now so that our mothers, sisters and daughters have a chance to fight this silent killer. By sharing a commitment to speak up, spread the word and support the research, you can help save lives.
As SDSU athletes, our heart health is an important part of our daily lives. Our hearts give us feelings of motivation and courage, and fuel our athletic pursuits. That's why we have partnered with the American Heart Association for Go Red for Women.
We want to encourage our community to stand with us and raise awareness of heart disease. It is the number one leading cause of death for women in the United States. Some high-risk groups include people of diverse ethnic background, those with diabetes, and those with high blood pressure. By sharing information about heart disease, we can prevent someone from being the next victim of a heart attack.
Your donations to the American Heart Association will allow more resources to be provided for cardiovascular studies. Together, we can help people live happier and healthier lives!
