What is Woman of Impact?
Woman of Impact shines a spotlight on women’s health as cardiovascular disease is the No. 1 killer of women.
By joining this campaign, you will be part of a nationwide network of women who are passionate, competitive, well-connected and driven to make a difference.
Launching annually on National Wear Red Day®, the first Friday in February, this 9-week competition empowers changemakers from across the U.S. to leverage their networks to create an impact in their community. By forming Impact Teams, participants use their collective influence to educate women on their risks, raise critical dollars to help fund lifesaving research and advocate for the health and well-being of all women – all while earning points for the impact they are making in their community and beyond.
At the end of the campaign, the nominee that makes the greatest impact and raises the most funds will be named their community’s Woman of Impact winner. The nominee who earns the most points in the country will be named the American Heart Association National Woman of Impact Winner.
Be a part of a movement that is changing the future of women’s heart health.
