Heart disease is the single biggest killer of Australian women and Heart Foundation’s annual fundraiser Go Red for Women is a big opportunity… to make a big difference.
Go Red for Women has concluded for 2015, but We Will Be Red again in 2020 get in touch and we’ll let you know how you can Go Red for Women in 2020
Why Go Red
Many people assume breast cancer is the biggest cause of death for women. It’s not. Heart disease kills three times more.
It’s the single biggest killer of Australian women… taking a life every hour of every day. You don’t have to be old, you don’t have to be overweight and your risk increases after menopause.
Go Red for Women is a great opportunity to help raise awareness and vital funds for women’s heart health.

How To Go Red
Host A Go Red EventFundraising
There are two easy and fun ways you can help. Simply wear something red on Thursday 11 June and make a donation better still, why not jost a heart health fundraiser at work or with your friends – a morning tea, perhaps. To make it really easy, follow the tabs above to access to download a range of materials including posters for your workplace proforma forms and other fundraising tips.
Also, this year we’re asking everyone to take a selfie of what you’ll be wearing and use your social network to get others involved. Our team and volunteers have already shown how you can go red below and we can’t wait to see how you will go red. Simply use the hashtag #WeWillBeRed and share it on your Facebook, Twitter, Instagram etc and help us raise awareness and funds for women’s heart health.
