The Camogie Association is joining forces with the Irish Heart Foundation in calling on the public to Go Red and support the women of Ireland – one quarter of whom will die from cardiovascular disease.
Cardiovascular disease is one of the leading causes of death in Ireland; women are almost six times more likely to die from cardiovascular disease than breast cancer. However, 80% of premature death from cardiovascular disease is preventable.
By Going Red for Women, you can support the Irish Heart Foundation’s work in communities across Ireland, raising awareness of and helping to prevent deaths from cardiovascular disease.
Each year, almost 9,000 people in Ireland die from heart disease and stroke, leaving behind devastated families and communities. Support the Go Red for Women campaign today by organising a red event or donating to the Irish Heart Foundation.
Clubs, Counties, Players and Supporters are now being challenged to ‘Go Red’ this week to raise awareness at this weekend’s national league fixtures and to spread the word through Social Media by tagging and sharing their efforts with the Camogie Association and the Irish Heart Foundation and using #GoRedForWomen
