It’s extreme makeover….Heart edition. The American Heart Association announced it is seeking applicants for New Hampshire’s Go Red BetterU Makeover Challenge.
Go Red BetterU is the American Heart Association’s 12-week nutrition and fitness program that can make over your heart. Each week focuses on a different area of health and provides step-by-step guidance, challenges and goals.
As part of the annual Manchester Go Red for Women Luncheon, the Shalini Maripuri Foundation is sponsoring the BetterU Makeover Challenge. Participants will experience a 12-week heart-healthy makeover with a free 12-week membership package to Executive Health & Sports Center’s ‘90 Day Commit to Get Fit Program.’ Each participant will take part in an initial wellness screening where height, weight, blood pressure, cholesterol, HDL/LDL, triglycerides, body mass index, and blood glucose will be measured. Those same numbers will be measured at the end of the 12-week challenge and the women will be revealed at the Go Red for Women Luncheon on Friday, September 29, 2017.
“We believe the American Heart Association is an outstanding organization to sponsor because the organization shares a common goal with The Executive Health & Sports Center: to improve wellness and decrease an individual’s risk factors for heart disease and diabetes,” said Tricia Benton, Co-Owner and Wellness Director at Executive Health & Sports Center. “In the spirit of the AHA’s mission, we also want to educate individuals in the greater Manchester area to take small, simple steps that will improve not only their lives, but their overall health.”
Applications are now being accepted through May 29, 2017. For more information or to apply, visit heart.org/nh
