american heart associationDid you know that each year, 1 in 3 women die of heart disease and stroke? Did you know that is can also be prevented? That’s why during the month of February, HRUC is proud to support the American Heart Association during American Heart Month! The purpose of American Heart Month is to raise awareness on heart disease and promote good heart health.

During the month of February, HRUC will be handing out Go Red for Women pins and educational materials provided by the American Heart Association. HRUC will be also selling paper hearts to raise funds for the American Heart Association. Those who donate will be able to show off their support by signing a heart, which will then be displayed in the HRUC lobby during the month of February. Funds raised will go towards cutting edge research, education for the public and lawmakers, and awareness efforts to promote healthy lifestyles.

Those who make a donation towards the American Heart Association will not only be making a contribution for a great cause, but will also be entered to win a raffle basket filled with HROSM goodies and a $25 VISA gift card!

Throughout the month February, be sure to keep an eye out on our social media accounts. We will be highlighting healthy tips to promote good heart health and healthy behaviors among the Hampton Roads community!

Join HRUC as we raise awareness on heart disease this February and promote healthy heart health!
