Dear Friend of the AHA:
I delight in the honor to chair, once again, the Blair County Go Red for Women event. This year, the event will take place on Thursday, May 24, 2018 at 6:00 p.m. at Blair County Convention Center in Altoona, PA. As you likely know, Blair Go Red for Women is an informative and entertaining event to encourage women to become champions for heart health. The event includes speakers, honorees, a healthy dining experience, and a fashion show. The fashion show includes models who are survivors. These models represent our mothers, daughters, friends, and sisters. Go Red for Women encourages awareness of the issue of women and heart disease. It challenges women to lead a heart healthy life.
Last year, the American Heart Association held its third Go Red for Women event in Blair County. We saw growth in attendance and the level of funding. Our goal this year is to raise $75,000 to enable the mission of the American Heart Association: to build healthier lives free of heart disease and stroke. I strongly encourage you to support the mission of The American Heart Association with your contribution.
You may ask how these funds help people in Blair County. I am pleased to let you know that there are multiple ways. For example, instructors continue to train people in basic life support, heart saving CPR, AED, first aid, advanced cardiovascular life support, pediatric advanced life support, and family and friends CPR . Thousands of children across our county participate in Jump Rope for Heart and Hoops for Heart. Children in this program learn early to take care of their health. In addition, funds raised support the science community’s exploration of basic, clinical, and population science that assists in accomplishing the AHA’s mission.
Please know your contribution will touch many lives. I encourage you to consider supporting the event by sponsoring or donating an auction item. Please review the enclosed sponsorship overview. If you have questions feel free to call Division Director Brooke Welsh at the American Heart Association office, 717-730-1713, or, of course, call me at 814-696-4518.
Please know we appreciate your support of this event and for all of your contributions to our community.
