Spa Sydell Unveils ‘Spring into Loving Your Heart’ During American Heart Association’s Go Red For Women Campaign
Spa Sydell believes in nurturing and caring for the whole body – both inside and out – and is honored to be a sponsor of the American Heart Association’s annual Go Red For Women campaign, the organization’s largest national annual initiative. Spa Sydell and the American Heart Association have jointly launched ‘Spring into Loving Your Heart’ to help raise awareness of heart disease in women.
Go Red For Women celebrates the energy, passion and power women possess to band together and wipe out heart disease, the number-one cause of death in women in the United States. Thanks to the participation of millions of people across the country, the ‘red dress’ and the color ‘red’ have become associated with the ability all women have to improve their heart health and live longer, stronger, healthier lives. Spreading the Go Red For Women message – love your heart – raises awareness of heart disease and empowers women to reduce their risk.
Spa Sydell is committed to helping Go Red for Women reach their near-term goal, which is nothing less than a 25% reduction in coronary heart disease and stroke risk by the year 2010. As the organization works toward this goal with Spa Sydell and other concerned businesses in Atlanta and across the country, they are also working hard to change the perception that heart disease is a man’s disease. By teaching women how to talk to their doctors about heart disease, thousands of lives can be saved every year, and heart disease is often preventable.
As a component to the Go Red for Women campaign, the American Heart Association is pleased to host a ‘Go Red for Women’ luncheon at the Ritz Carlton in Buckhead on May 9, 2008, and well-known actress Cicely Tyson will serve as keynote speaker. Spa Sydell will be an active participant in sending the ‘Spring into Loving Your Heart’ message to a sea of nearly 500 ‘women in red,’ on hand to hear Cicely’s plea for women to work together to help wipe out this killer disease.
Complimentary health screenings, vendor booths and registration will begin at 11 a.m. The luncheon will be held at 12 p.m., and educational breakout sessions will be held after lunch, from 1-2pm. Spa Sydell will provide complementary massages to luncheon attendees and will offer spa products in special goody bags provided to all guests.
Additionally, two gift package options — containing Spa Sydell’s most popular pampering services — will be available to Go Red for Women participants and sponsors, as well as spa guests who reserve services at all seven Spa Sydell locations. Spa Sydell is pleased to donate 10% of the sales from these two ‘Spring into Loving Your Heart’ packages to the American Heart Association in support of Go Red for Women.
