What is Men Go Red for Women?

A dynamic group of men who have the influence and resources to significantly impact the community by providing a personal gift to help find a cure fo rthe number one killer of women. Every man has a special woman in his life, whether it’s a mother, grandmother, sister or daughter.

Cardiovascular diseases end relationships and destroy lives, killing one woman every minute while, one in 29 women dies of breast cancer every minute. One in three women dies of heart disease, stroke and other cardiovascular diseases.

Cardiovascular diseases kill more women than the next five leading causes of death combined, but it often goes unnoticed.
