FANWOOD, NJ – The Chelsea assisted living residence (295 South Ave., Fanwood), along with Fanwood-based safety training company Little Hearts, Big World, will sponsor the 2016 Go Red for Women’s Health event on Friday, February 5, 6:30 to 9:00 p.m.
Go Red is a national campaign of the American Heart Association to raise awareness of women’s heart health, focusing on recognizing symptoms of heart attack in women and promoting a healthy lifestyle.
“We’re so busy working and taking care of our families that we don’t take great care of ourselves,” said Melissa Padulsky, owner of Little Hearts, Big World, which teaches CPR, first aid, safety for baby sitters and other occupational safety courses. “The Go Red campaign reminds everyone that women need to eat healthy, exercise and be vigilant of risk factors for cardiovascular disease, just as men do.”
The February 5th event at The Chelsea will feature local vendors, free chair massages, free blood pressure screenings, light food, a raffle and giveaways.
