Heart Health


On Friday, February 13, 2015, wear red in solidarity of women who are struggling or have struggled to maintain heart health. Submit a picture of yourself or others wearing red, and you will receive a Go Red pin. Email pictures to bjholloman@valdosta.edu. Please include the names of each person, department and date with the subject line: Go Red.

If red is not your color, there are other ways to participate. Submit a heart healthy recipe or personal story. Recipes will be compiled into a Heart Healthy recipe book, which will be given out during the Take Heart Luncheon. Feel free to send pictures to go with your personal story to bjholloman@valdosta.edu with the subject line: Personal stories. Please include name, a small blurb about the picture, and your department.

Participants will receive a Go Red pin. Participate in all three activities, and you can receive three Go Red pins. We look forward to hearing from you!
