The Circle of Red is a passionate group of women committed to educating other women about the prevention of heart disease in a fun, heart-healthy way. Members have the influence and resources to significantly impact the community by providing a personal commitment to help find a cure for the number one killer of women.
Each Circle of Red member donates time and treasure to improve the heart health of women and the Central Kentucky community. The American Heart Association’s reputation for scientific excellence is at the core of Go Red For Women’s lifesaving work.
Through the Circle of Red, the American Heart Association funds vital research and programs that fuel the development of medications, surgical innovations, treatments, and recommendations for preventing heart disease. Go Red funds allow us to help women directly by offering educational programs that increase understanding of heart disease risks. These funds provide the tools women need to be motivated to reduce their risk. Go Red funds help women indirectly by discovering scientific knowledge about women’s heart health and turning it into materials and tools that healthcare providers can use to help women.
