Do you know that cardiovascular disease (CVD) is the number one killer of women in Singapore? Yet, a heart health survey conducted by the Singapore Heart Foundation in 2013 revealed that only 11% of Singaporean women were aware that CVD is their leading cause of death.
To increase awareness of the dangers posed by this ‘silent killer’, the Singapore Heart Foundation’s Go Red for Women (GRFW) campaign returns this year with the mass walk to encourage women and their families to take active steps towards a heart-healthy lifestyle.
Go Red for Women
Pledge Your Heart Walk is a family-friendly 3.5km walk that aims to shine the spotlight on women, whom are gate-keepers to the family’s health and are just as vulnerable as men to suffer from CVD.
Participants, both young and the young-at-heart are encouraged to Go Red to honour the women in their life and support them in making their health a priority. Participants can either wear the event pledge tee, jazz up their outfit with red accessories or even wear a red dress!
