Our Go Red for Women campaign is changing the perception women in Toledo have about heart disease and stroke. Throughout the year, we share life-changing stories of triumph and loss to inspire women to make changes to their own personal health. Through National Wear Red and Give Day, we blanket Toledo in a sea of red so that women know heart disease and stroke are their number one health threats. And through various programs, we are working with underserved communities to improve health and opportunities for all women.
