Join the Fight Against Heart Disease in Women

Go Red for Women is a call to action to stand up against heart disease. Learn about what causes heart disease, educate the people around you, and become an advocate for heart disease prevention. Support the Go Red movement by participating in a local Go Red event. Donate your time or resources. Wear red on February 1, National Go Red Day.

43 million women in the US are affected by cardiovascular disease.

La Jolla Blue Book Supports Go Red for Women

La Jolla Blue Book believes strongly in supporting causes that positively affect our community's health and prosperity. We're proud to sponsor the San Diego Go Red for Women Luncheon. We encourage all San Diegans to get involved, voice support and encourage others to participate.

90 percent of women have one or more risk factors for developing heart disease.
