Heart luncheon planned


Staff report



PIQUA — The American Heart Association’s Go Red Goes North Luncheon and Corporate Wellness Event will be Sept. 10 at the Fort Piqua Plaza Banquet Center, 308 N. Main St., Piqua.

The health and wellness expo will begins at 10 a.m. and the luncheon is from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m.

The event, for which Nancy Wilson of K99.1 FM will serve as mistress of ceremonies, will also feature motivational speaker and comedienne Kay Francis, as well as a local personal story of hope and inspiration. The Go Red for Women Luncheon is designed to create an inspirational and informative atmosphere, which will encourage women and those who love them to become champions of health. It will also focus on the vitality and energy of women. During the health and wellness expo, all guests will have the opportunity to participate in health screenings, as well as interact with healthcare professionals about blood pressure, cholesterol, fitness, nutrition and stroke-prevention.

“Go Red For Women is about much more than wearing red on National Wear Red Day. It’s about making a change,” said Susan Curtis, of Miami Valley Steel and the chairwoman of this year’s event. “For more than a decade, millions of women have united to raise their voices about this silent killer. While we’ve made remarkable progress, nearly 1,100 women are still dying each day. But, with your help, many more lives can be saved. That’s why we support this important event.”

The 2015 Go Red Goes North Event is sponsored locally by Upper Valley Medical Center, part of Premier Health. Other local sponsors include Wilson Memorial Hospital and Midmark. Media sponsors are WPTW/Muzzy Broadcasting, the Troy Daily News, the Piqua Daily Call, the Sidney Daily News and the Record Herald. Go Red for Women is sponsored nationally by Macy’s. Tickets are $40. Corporate tables are also available. For information or to purchase a ticket, call 853-3102, email ellen.duncil@heart.org or visit heart.org/dayton.
