TINTON FALLS, NJ - Seabrook residents and staff donned their brightest red to raise awareness about heart disease in women as part of the national Go Red For Women Day®.
Seabrook Community Services Manager Judy Seger, along with other departments at Seabrook, brought the 'Go Red' event to the community. She said, "According to the American Heart Association, more women die of cardiovascular disease than the next five causes of death combined, including all forms of cancer. By bringing the 'Go Red' campaign to Seabrook, our goal was to raise awareness about the dangers of heart disease and send a message that there are things that women can do to guard against this killer."
With one out of three women still dying from heart disease, the American Heart Association continues to fight this number one killer by helping women turn simple choices into life-saving actions.
According to the American Heart Association, more than 43 million American women are living with one of more type of cardiovascular disease, yet only one in five view heart disease as their greatest health threat. That's why the American Heart Association's Go Red For Women helps fund cutting-edge research, conducts lifesaving public and professional educational programs and advocates the for the protection of women's heart health.
Founded in 1924, the American Heart Association is the nation's oldest and largest voluntary health organization dedicated to building healthier lives, free of heart disease and stroke.
