I am so excited that we are launching our “Go Red with the Storm” campaign today. This idea has been in the works for several months and we finally get to share it with Storm fans. Our goal for this campaign is to inspire others to join me in taking steps (literally) toward a healthier heart.
We are really excited to be partnered with the American Heart Association’s Go Red for Women movement and Virginia Mason Medical Center. AHA’s goredforwomen.org is an awesome resource for heart health tips – be sure to check it out!
When we first initiated this idea, I consulted with some great women at Virginia Mason – an internal medicine doc, Dr. Nkeiruka Duze; a cardiologist, Dr. Sara Weiss; and a nutrionist, Kathleen Humbert. I’m thankful to have access to a great support team from VM to help guide me through this process.
The common theme when meeting with each of them was “keep it simple”. When you really stop and think about it, it really is pretty to each to make small changes that can make a difference and that will be a theme throughout this campaign. We all have different challenges and barriers so our approach and our goals will be different. But together we can encourage each other to take “one step at a time” toward a healthy heart.
Virginia Mason is also providing the pedometers that you receive FREE if you register for our campaign so SIGN UP TODAY! I appreciate your support and look forward to hearing more about your personal journey.
