FAIRBANKS, ALASKA – The American Heart Association (AHA) is pleased to announce that on the 10th anniversary of the Go Red For Women movement, all of the past Fairbanks luncheon chairs are joining together to serve as co-chairs for the 2014 event.

Patrice Case, Jo Heckman, Joan Johnson, Jo Kuchle, Shelby Nelson, Marilyn Romano, Cherie Solie, Terry Strle and Lisa Sundborg will all co-chair this year’s Fairbanks Go Red For Women Luncheon.

Go Red For Women is part of a movement started by the American Heart Association in 2004. Women were not paying attention to their heart health, and heart disease, the number one killer of women, claims the lives of nearly 500,000 American women each year. The American Heart Association created Go Red For Women in order to raise awareness of cardiovascular diseases while empowering women to take charge of their heart health in a passionate, emotional, and social atmosphere.

Over 700 people attend the sell-out event in Fairbanks each year. The 2014 luncheon is scheduled for Friday, February 14, from 11:15 a.m. until 1:00 p.m., at the Carlson Center. To purchase tickets, volunteer, or to learn more about the event visit fairbanksgoredluncheon.org, call (907) 374-0464, or email meadow.bailey@heart.org.

The American Heart Association’s Go Red For Women movement has been impacting the health of women for 10 years. More than 627,000 women’s lives have been saved, but the fight is far from over.  Now is the time to shout louder, stand stronger and demand change. It’s time to come together in a movement that is not just FOR women, but BY women. It’s time for women to Go Red. Visit  GoRedForWomen.org for more information or call 1-888-MY-HEART.  The American Heart Association’s Go Red For Women movement is nationally sponsored by Macy’s, with additional support from our cause supporters.
