Throughout the pandemic, the American Heart Association’s top priority has been the health and well-being of our survivors, volunteers, guests and staff. Thanks to your unwavering support, we have adapted quickly to the ever-evolving landscape as we all do our part to face this pandemic head on. As you undoubtedly know, COVID-19 cases are on the rise, leading to a higher community spread while negatively impacting hospitals and their staff. After reviewing the current COVID-19 situation in our area, we have determined the best course of action is to postpone the event until February 2023. Please stay tuned for more information.
We want you to know that every option was thoroughly considered before this decision was made. As an organization dedicated to saving and improving lives, our priority is to protect our guests and staff – especially our survivors who are most at risk of serious illness – as well as to do our part to reduce the impact to our local hospitals and their resources. As always, thank you for your understanding and ongoing support of our mission. We look forward to celebrating with you soon, and please stay tuned for more information.
Although we are disappointed that our luncheon has been postponed due to the ongoing pandemic, we are excited to announce that our Silent Auction will be available for online bidding! The auction will open on February 4th and close on February 9th. Visit https://event.gives/longviewgored to bid.

Live Fierce. Go Red!
Losing one woman to heart disease and stroke is too many.
The Go Red for Women experience continues to be the cornerstone of the Go Red for Women movement in local communities. This empowering gathering focuses on preventing heart disease and stroke, sharing stories of people impacted by cardiovascular disease and raises critically needed funds to save more lives.
Since 2004, the Go Red for Women movement has educated millions of women as to their No. 1 health threat: cardiovascular disease. But now we face a new challenge, younger women and women of color are not aware that this threat is real. We continue to innovate ways to ensure all women are aware of their greatest health threat, their risks and what they can do to reduce them. Good health is a journey, not a destination, and we want to walk hand in hand with women throughout their lifetimes as their trusted wellness partner.
Go Red for Women has evolved into a global movement and is a driving force in the world of health equity. We accelerate science, advance public health policy, and address the multitude of gender and racial gaps for women in research, healthcare and more, all thanks to supporters like you.
The time is now. The need is real. Our strength is unmatched. There is no greater, more relentless force in the world than women united with passion and purpose.
They transcend age, race, industry and geography to raise awareness of women’s No. 1 health threat: cardiovascular diseases. Meet the 2021 Go Red for Women Real Women — a sisterhood of survivors who passionately share their personal experiences with heart disease and stroke to empower women to lower their cardiovascular risk.
We honor these fiercely fabulous women, and we thank them for supporting our mission: To be a relentless force for a world of longer, healthier lives.
