Go Red for Women Luncheon to return June 24

Proceeds support lifesaving cardiovascular research for females
June 7, 2022

After nearly two years without in-person events, the American Heart Association announced the 2022 Go Red for Women Luncheon will be held at noon, Friday, June 24, at Delaware Technical Community College in Dover.

“The fight to end heart disease and stroke in women is relentless, and since the last in-person luncheon event in 2019, the American Heart Association has remained committed to raising awareness of the No. 1 killer of women – cardiovascular disease – and funding lifesaving research for women’s heart health,” said David Morris, AHA executive director in Delaware. “According to the American Heart Association, heart disease, stroke and other cardiovascular diseases take the lives of more women than all forms of cancer combined.”

“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 dies from cardiovascular diseases, and losing even one woman is too many,” said Dr. Lisa Maxwell, event co-chair and president of the ChristianaCare Medical Group. 

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.

The Go Red for Women Luncheon is designed to raise awareness about cardiovascular disease, the leading cause of death for women in the United States, as well as generate funds for lifesaving cardiovascular research for women.

Go Red for Women is nationally sponsored by CVS Health, and the Delaware luncheon is locally sponsored by ChristianaCare and Delaware Solid Waste Authority.
