2013 Go Red for Women Luncheon Fact Sheet
The American Heart Association presents the Go Red for Women luncheon, an event to raise funds for research and initiatives preventing heart disease. The luncheon is the American Heart Association’s annual event to increase awareness of heart disease—the No. 1 cause of death for women—and inspire women to take charge of their health. This year, the Central Coast Division of the American Heart Association funded over $14 million in grants to researchers in the state of California. With these funds, we have advanced groundbreaking research and widespread education, giving women the knowledge and power to live a longer, healthier life.
