Come one, come all! TWU is joining the American Heart Association on making women (and men) aware of the #1 killer- heart disease (cardiovascular disease). We need your help to get the word out to everyone. Starting on Tuesday, February 5th TWU and other business partners are hosting Go Red for Women. So, wear your favorite red outfit and join us!
The activities start at noon in the TWU Fitness and Recreation Center-Studio One where lunch will be served free for the first 50 participants. A discussion panel will take place to answer all of your questions about heart disease. There will be “Paint T-Dub Red” (around 1:00 pm), which will be a campus photo of everyone who shows up wearing red. You will also see our contest “Color T-Dub Red” where our departments compete on having the most red, most healthy heart information, and most creative presentation of presentation of Go Red for Women.
Also, the month of February is "I love my heart" cardio challenge located in the Fitness and Recreation Center where you boost your cardio workouts and compete for prizes.
By wearing red you are helping raise awareness of cardiovascular disease and empowering others to reduce their risk of cardiovascular disease.
