Dear, Friend of Heart–
Did you know that cardiovascular diseases, including stroke, are the leading cause of death in all women? Heart disease kills 1 in 3 women.
The American Heart Association/ American Stroke Association urges men and women alike to take a stand against our Nation’s deadliest killer by remembering to Go Red.

Meet the five Green Bay Go Red Challengers: Mari McAllister-Charles, Hannah Duffey, Sara Bruskiewicz, Colleen Hansen, and Ann Watzka. These women are trailblazing change in our community. Each of them knew they were living with risk factors, and wanted to make a change for themselves and their families.
For the last 12 weeks the Go Red Challengers have been changing their lifestyle, one habit at a time. By working with our Go Red sponsors: Pro Fitness, LLC; Green Bay Integrative Health; Laura Mossakowski, LLC; Festival Foods; and Dr. Brookh Lyons, LLC they have undergone a lifesaving makeover.
We are excited to highlight these 5 women and share about their journey at the upcoming Green Bay Go Red for Women Luncheon. These women are one of the many reasons why the work of the AHA and Go Red is crucial, and how the funds we raise make a difference.
At the end of the Go Red for Women Luncheon, we will ask all of our guests to participate in Open Your Heart. Our goal is that 100% of our guests make a donation to the American Heart Association in order to continue funding the work that is saving womens’ lives—thanks to Go Red for Women, more than 627,000 women have been saved.
We ask that you would consider pre-committing your gift today. By doing so, you will be recognized at the luncheon for already making a donation, leading the way for others to support our mission. Gifts of all dollar amounts are held with gratitude.
