Through the Go Red for Women movement, the American Heart Association brings awareness to the No. 1 health threat for women: heart disease.    

One of our most inspirational leaders, Lorraine Dodero, of the Sam J. Frankino Foundation and the Corinne L. Dodero Foundation is chairing this year’s Go Red for Women movement campaign and generously committed a $30,000 gift to the AHA mission to inspire you to give to the cause. During the months of September and October, every dollar raised up to $30,000, will be matched by Lorraine Dodero, doubling the overall impact of your donation!

Often, women are the backbone of our communities, and our families. When we reach women, we tend to reach entire families and support them in making positive decisions about their health. During this unprecedented and challenging time, our heart & stroke survivors face higher risks of contracting COVID-19 and suffering complications from the virus.   

1 in 3 women suffer from heart disease. They are why. Our mothers, sisters, aunts, nieces, and families are why. Now more than ever, survivors need us to step up as a force to do good, to foster change, and to eradicate heart disease. We need to step up for women of all ages – from the young girls participating in our STEM Goes Red for Girls programs to the millennials and new moms to the generations facing greater health concerns.   

Won’t you please join Lorraine in stepping up, by making a gift to the campaign?  Click HERE to donate today!    If you have questions, please reach out to us at or 216-619-5159.     

Thank you for joining the fight for a heart-healthy future for us all.
