On February 6 the Central Arkansas Survivor Gallery was unveiled at the State Capitol. At this event 10 Heart and Stroke Survivors were honored in front of a group of over 60 attendees that included family members, local board members, Circle of Red, Red Tie Society, Advocacy volunteers, and members of the media.
Each individual story is unique but with a common bond of being survivors. The stories shared a common theme of overcoming health obstacles and showcasing their inspirational story for others to hear. The survivors will be featured at the Central Arkansas Go Red for Women Luncheon held May 14th. The Survivor boards will travel the Central AR business area displayed in lobbies and high traffic areas to encourage people to join the Go Red Movement.
We would like to thank our legislative hostess Rep. Charlene Fite and Rep. Shelia Lampkin as well as First Lady Ginger Beebe for their attendance and comments regarding heart health.
