causes "Redness" (raising awareness of heart disease) in women.
We whole-heartedly believe in causing "Redness" (raising awareness of heart disease) in women! As the Silent Killer, heart disease surprisingly is the #1 killer of women… we feel it is so important to help educate women about symptoms, making healthy choices and seeing their doctor regularly.
Hummingbird Creative Group has been actively involved with Go Red for Women since 2010. Wendy Coulter and Cathy Sanita attended their first Triangle Go Red for Women luncheon in 2010. Our client, Southeastern Emergency Equipment, had just committed to be a major sponsor of the event and had invited us. Cathy, with a history of heart disease in her family, was immediately interested in spreading the word for Go Red. Carla Baker, President of Southeastern Emergency Equipment, served as the Chair of the 2011 Triangle Go Red for Women Executive Leadership Team. Carla asked Wendy to serve on the ELT to help with the logistics for the luncheon, and Cathy willingly jumped in to assist with many aspects of the 2011 campaign.
After the 2011 luncheon, Go Red for Women Triangle established a “Passion Committee” to handle logistics and aid the Director of Corporate Relations, Kelly Rogers, with ideas for the event. Cathy and Wendy were named co-chairs of the Passion Committee, which has assisted Kelly with planning the 2012 luncheon, the Premiere Party last October and “Wear Red Day” in February.
Hummingbird Creative Group is very proud to be an in-kind sponsor for the 2011 and 2012 Go Red for Women Triangle luncheon marketing materials, including: invitation and program design, securing speakers, coordinating vendors, gaining publicity, signage design, serving as ambassadors, helping plan the events and coming up with fun ideas to make the events more impactful to attendees.
“I’ve personally seen what heart disease can do to a family. We hope to do our small part to help save lives by supporting this cause to educate women and create more awareness of the disease.” -Cathy Sanita
The best way to stop heart disease is to prevent it. Cause "Redness" and survive it all; know the warning signs, understand your risks and visit your doctor regularly.
