Go Red For Women: Fresno, Ca

On Friday February 26th I traveled to the Go Red For Women Luncheon in Fresno, Ca. Since Fresno is only two hours from Bakersfield, we made it a family trip as Paul and Lincoln came along for the day and it was great having them to support me. The day was full of great events like a silent and oral auction, lunch, a GO RED fashion show hosted by Macy's and an amazing guest speaker by the name of Eliz Green. Eliz was seven months pregnant with twins and only 35 years old suffered a heart attack. Her story is inspiring and can help everyone to lead a heart healthy lifestyle. For more information visit I introduced the breakout speakers and also informed everyone about who I am and what I am doing as Mrs. California Intl 2010. The guest speakers I had the pleasure of introducing were James Leath: a personal trainer, who spoke about making fitness fun and scheduling it into your daily life. Lisa Bessard: a Dietetic Inter from Fresno State, who spoke about heart healthy food and ways to but food on a budget. Once again it was an amazing day that made me think about how important it is to tell friends and loved ones about how to get and live heart healthy. A special thank you to Valerie Cain for inviting me to attend the function and to all the people from the Fresno area who welcomed me with open arms. The community of Fresno is full of wonderful people who are just trying to make a difference in peoples lives and it was great to be with like minded leaders. Cardiovascular disease kills a woman every minute: Mothers, Grandmothers, Daughters, Sisters and Friends. It is the leading cause of death among women. Their are ways to decrease your risk: eat better, keep moving and manage your stress. Go to for more information and remember it's Your Heart, Your Choice.
