A popular SCV womans store is holding an evening event to help
raise awareness for heart disease and stroke among women.
Bella Sport, a local womens athletic store, is taking on two of the biggest diseases facing women these days; Heart Disease and stroke.
Next week they will be holding holding a VIP Go Red Event in conjunction
with the American Heart Association's national Go Red for Women campaign. Both the Go Red Event and the Go Red for Women Campaign are
asking people to help raise awareness for heart disease and strokes among women
by wearing red on February 6.
“Our symptoms are so different than men’s when we have a
heart attack, and it's important that we make every woman aware of this,” said
Anna Ott owner of Bella Sport.
The Go Red Event will also take place on that day in the store and it is open to
anyone who wishes to participate. The VIP evening will have food and a raffle from 5:30
pm to 8:30 pm, with a portion of the proceeds from the day’s sales going to the
American Heart Association to help find a cure for heart disease.
Local doctor Samuel Kojoglanian will also be at the event
speaking on heart disease and prevention.
According to the Goredforwomen.org heart disease is the
number one killer of women. Additionally, the Center for Disease control reports that in 2002 almost
700,000 deaths were caused by heart disease in the United States, with women making up
51 percent of that number.
