GSNCA Goes Red!

In honor of National Wear Red day for the Go Red for Women campaign to bring awareness of heart disease in women, Girl Scouts of North-Central Alabama is trading in their green for red! Heart disease is the number one killer of American women, and greatly affects young women. Girls need to learn early to identify risk factors which include high blood pressure, high cholesterol, being overweight or obese, physical inactivity, diabetes and smoking. The earlier they begin a healthy lifestyle, the earlier they are set up for a long and healthy life. 

From engaging in regular physical activity to eating healthy and reducing stress, you'll not only keep your heart happy, you'll put a smile on your face too! Does this sound like a major life change? Maybe it's all in how you look at it:
  • For physical activity, think walking, jogging, cycling or dancing with someone you love
  • For a healthy diet, think whole grains, delicious fresh fruits and more
