Executive Leadership Team
Cardiovascular disease is the leading cause of death in the nation and stroke is the third leading cause of death. The American Heart Association is the organization leading the charge to combat this deadly disease. Countless Americans rely on the AHA to educate and empower themselves about nutrition, physical activity and other preventive measures. The American Heart Association has an extraordinary impact on lives by empowering people to save lives, live healthier and enjoy more peace of mind about cardiovascular disease.
I am proud to be the Chair of the 2011 Billings Go Red For Women Luncheon. This is an event and an organization that is vital to the health of our community and our country. Go Red For Women educates and encourages women of all ages to take action against their number one killer, heart disease, by making heart-healthy choices every day to live longer, stronger lives.
We could not accomplish the lifesaving work of the American Heart Association without the support of our community. Your participation in the 2011 Billings Go Red For Women Luncheon will help save lives and empower our community to live healthier. We extend a heartfelt thank you for your generous support.

Welcome to the Billings Go Red For Women Luncheon! We’re delighted you want to learn how you can advance health, stop heart disease and save women’s lives. That’s what Go Red For Women is all about.
Heart disease isn’t just a man’s problem. It’s a woman’s problem, too. In fact, it’s women’s No. 1 killer. And, tragically, far too few women realize their risk from this often-preventable disease. We need to raise women’s awareness, to protect our mothers, daughters, sisters, friends and other loved ones. And ourselves.
You can help, starting today. Here’s how:
First, take charge of your own heart health. Visit your doctor. Know your numbers (learn more at goredforwomen.org). You can improve your blood pressure, cholesterol and other numbers by making lifestyle changes. You’ll be healthier and look and feel better, too.
Second, speak up. Help spread the word that heart disease is women’s No. 1 killer. You can make a difference. Choose to share what you learn today with your family and members of your community.
Third and last, consider making a contribution. Your donation will help fund local and national Go Red activities to support awareness, research, education and community programs to benefit women.
Please don’t leave today without committing to make a difference. Join the Go Red For Women movement — women need your help. There’s so much to do, and so much at stake. Only one in five women believes that heart disease is her greatest health threat. Reducing risk and preventing heart disease starts with education — and you.
By working together, we can help women and their families live longer, stronger lives. Thank you for your generous support.
