As you probably already know, heart disease is still the No. 1 killer of women, taking the life of one in three women each year. This means women just like you - mothers, sisters, and friends are dying at the rate of one per minute because they don't know what you know: heart disease kills. To help increase awareness about heart health, Toledo, Ohio based Tuffy Associates Corp. is partnering with the American Heart Association to help raise research dollars for this year’s Go Red for Women event.

“Building healthier lifestyles free of heart disease and stroke is important to us all at Tuffy,” mentions Barry Unrast, Advertising Executive for Tuffy Associates Corp. “This is a great way to show the women in our community that we care.”

“Each year on the first Friday of February, our local hospitals, corporations, small businesses, and schools ‘Go Red’ to help raise awareness in the fight against heart disease in women,” replies Christine Colvin from the American Heart Association. “We’re very appreciative and excited that businesses like Tuffy have joined us in our mission.”
