Here’s the bad news: In the time that it takes you to read this short blog post, approximately one woman in the US will pass away from some form of heart disease. Roughly one in three women’s deaths can be attributed to it, and 90% of women have one or more risk factors for developing it.
And the good news? The vast majority of us still have plenty of time to raise awareness, change bad habits, and reduce those numbers. And ALL of us have the chance, right now, to pause and appreciate the women in our lives and make an effort to value more the time we have left together.
That’s why every Friday from now until April 19th, on behalf of all women suffering from the menace of heart disease, all of us at Remington Park and the Chickasaw Nation are joining with the American Heart Association to Go Red for Women! By joining together as a team, we’re helping OKC reach towards a goal of $1,200,000 in donations to be raised by the time of the Heart Walk at the Bricktown Ballpark on April 19th to go towards research, treatment, and awareness. Although it’s a silent, sneaky, and easily forgettable danger in our busy day-to-day lives, we can bring about change by joining together and giving a voice to this noble cause.
So know your risk, live healthy, and get involved! Let’s see how far we can go to prevent heart disease in women – not just for ourselves, but for our mothers, wives, sisters, daughters, and loved ones across the globe.
