Let’s Unite! Men and women from across Long Island will be getting all their red outfits and accessories ready for the American Heart Association’s 18th Annual Long Island Go Red for Women Luncheon. Heart disease and stroke are the No. 1 and No. 5 causes of death of Long Island women. For more than a decade, women have been fighting heart disease individually and together as part of the Go Red for Women movement. Cardiovascular diseases cause one in three women’s deaths each year, killing approximately one woman every minute.

Since 1984, more women than men have died each year from heart disease & stroke. An estimated 43 million women in the U.S. are affected by cardiovascular diseases. When you get involved in supporting Go Red for Women by advocating, fundraising and sharing your story, more lives are saved.
