LIVERPOOL, N.Y. -- Hundreds of people wear red in honor of Central New York women who are fighting heart disease. More than 400 people attended the ninth annual Go Red for Women Luncheon and Expo on Thursday, raising more than $185,000.
This year's Go Red for Women campaign began in February to educate the public about the disease. Organizers of the event said heart disease is the number one killer of women in Central New York, and more than 80 percent of heart disease is preventable.
"You can manage your heart health. You have control of it by taking care of your diet, exercising, and not smoking," said Susan Crossett, Chairperson of Go Red for Women.
Women attending the luncheon were able to get health screenings, spa treatments, and attended sessions to help better their lifestyle.
