Westchester Women to Reconnect in Person to Fight Heart Disease at Westchester Go Red for Women Experience

After nearly two years away from in person events, today the American Heart Association, the world’s leading nonprofit organization focused on heart and brain health for all, announced the 2022 Westchester Go Red for Women® movement will transform its famous luncheon into an evening experience.

This signature event will take place Thursday, March 24 at 5:30 p.m. – 7:00 p.m. at the Sleepy Hollow Hotel + Conference Center in Tarrytown. Doors will open for the Go Red for Women celebration at 5:30 p.m., providing opportunity for attendees to network, participate in the signature PURSE-onality auction, and attend the main program, featuring stories from survivors and remarks from leaders who are improving women’s health in Westchester.

Recent Go Red for Women surveys show that younger women, Gen Z and Millennials, are less likely to be aware that heart disease is their greatest health threat.

“Go Red for Women is about educating, engaging and empowering women to lead their best lives,” said Dawn French, Co-Chair of the 2022 Go Red for Women movement in Westchester County and Senior Vice President for Marketing, Communication and Community Relations at White Plains Hospital.

According to the American Heart Association, it’s not just about wearing red. It’s not just about sharing heart-health facts. It’s about all women standing together with Go Red for Women — because 1 in 3 women die from cardiovascular diseases and losing even one woman is too many.

“Today, many women are struggling to juggle responsibilities more than ever. They are stressed, navigating work, family, and other important life events. With so many priorities, physical health and mental wellbeing often falls to the bottom of the list,” said Jennifer Bello, R.N., Co-Chair of the 2021-2022 Go Red for Women movement in Westchester County and Senior Director of Nursing at White Plains Hospital.

Since 2004, Go Red for Women has had a profound impact on women’s health. As the trusted, passionate, and relevant force to eradicate heart disease and stroke, through the Go Red for Women movement, the American Heart Association remains steadfast and committed to meeting the comprehensive health needs of women — at every life stage.

“We are looking forward to gathering in person once again to raise awareness as well as funds for lifesaving cardiovascular research,” said Ms. French.

Go Red for Women is nationally sponsored by CVS Health and is locally sponsored by Live Fierce Take Action sponsor White Plains Hospital; Live Fierce Go Red sponsor Northwell Health; Live Fierce Stand for All sponsor Mastercard; and Morgan Stanley.
