For Valentine’s Day, a group from Kaiser Realty, Inc. was given the opportunity to attend the American Heart Association’s 2nd Annual Alabama Gulf Coast “Go Red For Women Symposium,” in Mobile, alongside 350 other passionate people from the community.
As part of the American Heart Association’s national “Go Red For Women” campaign, this well organized event was an all day effort to raise awareness and funds to help fight the number one cause of deaths among women: heart disease. With events such as health screenings, breakout sessions and even a keynote speech from three-time Olympic Gold Medalist, Gail Devers, this event cannot be described by any word other than “successful.”
The morning started with various breakout sessions covering topics such as “What Every Woman Should Know About Heart Disease,” “American Heart Association on the Alabama Gulf Coast,” “Women and Wealth,” and “Easy Heart Healthy Cooking.” With a goal of spreading the word about heart disease, and exponentially decreasing the number of those affected, the American Heart Association continuously uses education as an the platform for their campaigns.
Following the breakout sessions, attendees of the symposium were invited to join their fellow community members for a luncheon featuring various talks by area residents affected by heart disease, a fashion show sponsored by Metzger’s of Mobile and a heartfelt story of overcoming health issues by Olympian, Gail Devers. Following the amazing stories by these strong and resilient members of our Gulf Coast community, the event’s famous “Red Purse raffle,” finished the event off with a bang!
Kaiser Realty, Inc. is once again elated to be able to attend one of the American Heart Association’s empowering events and is proud to supporter various American Heart Association events throughout the Alabama Gulf Coast. As a platform sponsor of the “Alabama Gulf Coast Heart Walk,” “Live Auction” sponsor of the upcoming “Art for Heart” auction, and as this year’s “My.Heart.
