Fort Wayne to Host National Casting Call

The American Heart Association is offering women the opportunity to share their stories for chance to become a local or national Go Red For Women® spokesperson. In January and February, casting calls will be held in conjunction with Go Red Connect events being held across the country. Five women from the casting calls will be selected to serve as national spokeswomen for Go Red For Women, appearing on marketing materials and at events while serving as ambassadors for the cause. Women from the casting calls will also be selected to serve as the faces of Go Red For Women in their communities.

Fort Wayne will host a Go Red For Women Connect event with a casting call from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. on Wednesday, January 19, at the Parkview Women’s Health Center, 11123 Parkview Plaza Dr. Suite 200. At the casting call, women can share their story on why they are passionate about speaking out against heart disease in women. Women attending the casting call are encouraged to wear red for the taping. Women can also choose to share their story in writing instead of on video at the event.

Women attending the free event can also register to win Go Red For Women prizes, pick up a Wear Red Day kit for their company to prepare for National Wear Red Day on Feb. 4, and obtain information that will help them lead heart-healthier lives.
