Go Red For Women Luncheon

On April 29th, The Go Red for Women annual luncheon was held at the US Grant Hotel in downtown San Diego. The Go For Red experience continues to be the cornerstone of the Go Red for Women movement in local communities. The luncheon began with a reception in the foyer with a display of fashion and accessories made available to the attendees, followed by a sit-down luncheon, a presentation of the Go Red For Real Women class of 2022, followed by a fashion presentation by renowned Founder of Fashion Forward, Leonard Simpson.

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, as 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.

The Go For Red Women honored at the luncheon transcend age, race, industry and geography to raise awareness of women’s No. 1 health threat: cardiovascular diseases. Meet the 2022 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.
