We are so excited you have decided to join our Bless Your Heart Virtual Health Challenge. The challenge starts on February 5th, National Wear Red Day, and that’s when we will kick-off our month long heart healthy challenge. Each week you’ll receive email communication full of heart healthy information, check-ins, educational links, challenges and contest opportunities. We are going to learn a lot and have some fun.
What we ask of you is to engage on our Facebook site as well as post on your own site when you do something heart healthy! The more you post the more entries you earn into our main drawing for a Bogg Bag! At the end of the challenge every participant will receive a Bless Your Heart Health Challenge Medal. So if you’re ready to start your heart healthy challenge and have some fun then click below to get started. It’s only a $15 donation to sign up today!
Heart Disease in Women
Proceeds go to benefit the American Heart Association of Mississippi. Cardiovascular disease is the No. 1 killer of women, causing 1 in 3 deaths each year. Nearly 80 percent of cardiac events can be prevented, cardiovascular diseases continue to be a woman’s greatest health threat. There are several misconceptions about heart disease in women, and they could be putting you at risk. The AHA’s Go Red For Women movement advocates for more research and swifter action for women’s heart health for this very reason.
Building awareness and helping women learn about the right tools for heart health is one of our missions. This challenge is designed to get you started in becoming more aware of your daily activities and eating habits. Its really about making those little changes to help make a big impact in your life.
