December 4th: Application Deadline for Go Red BetterU Makeover Challenge

Go Red BetterU Makeover Challenge!


We want YOU! The American Heart Association, along with Lowell General Hospital and the Genavix Wellness Network are seeking applicants for this life-changing challenge. We want applications from men and women who have a desire to change their lifestyle in order to live a more heart-healthy life. We will select individuals to participate in the BetterU Makeover Challenge and showcase them at The Heart Health Fair.


The individuals selected will participate in a 12-week HEART HEALTH makeover. They will meet with personal health coaches from The Genavix Wellness Network's "90 Day Commit to Get Fit Program" to learn to take care of their hearts and bodies over the course of this 12-week program.


The American Heart Association, Lowell General Hospital and the Genavix Wellness Network, our generous sponsors, will provide all of the services needed for this 13 week challenge. More details will be available to the chosen participants.


Applications are due no later than Wednesday, December 4, 2013, and the participants will be notified shortly thereafter. The Challenge will kick-off on Monday, January 13, 2014 and will come to a close on Friday, April 11, 2014.


Heart disease is the No. 1 killer of women. In fact, 1 in 29 women die of breast cancer, but about 1 in every 2.4 women will die of heart disease, stroke, and other cardiovascular diseases. Despite these staggering facts, only 21% of women consider heart disease a health threat. We have set out to change this perception with the hopes of also changing these statistics. The BetterU Challenge will not only encourage participants to live a healthier lifestyle, but it will also raise awareness about the importance of heart health and how we can save our own lives as well as the lives of the women we love.


You can simply fill out the BetterU Application and submit it to the American Heart Association (see form for details). Men are also encouraged to apply.

Go Red for Women celebrates the energy, passion and power we have as women to band together to wipe out heart disease and stroke.

It's time for a BetterU!
