A heart-healthy lifestyle will earn one woman a shopping spree.

Macy’s and the American Heart Association will sponsor a Go Red Total Makeover Feb. 8 at Macy’s SouthPark from 1-3 p.m. The program will spotlight a heart-healthy woman in the process of making herself over from the inside out.

Heart disease affects 43 million women in the U.S. 

Nominees should be women from the Charlotte area working to improve their heart health. The winner will get a $500 Macy’s gift card. Nominations can be submitted to Go Red For Women through Jan. 27 via email at goredtotalmakeover-charlotte@heart.org. A self-nomination will also be accepted. 

“As founding national sponsor of Go Red For Women, Macy’s has played an instrumental role in the AHA’s mission to stop the No.1 killer of women, helping to raise $46 million for the cause,” said Chrissy Geimann, director of Go Red For Women in Charlotte. “For 10 years, women have been fighting heart disease individually and together with Go Red For Women; more than 627,000 lives have been saved." 

Every Go Red Total Makeover attendee will get an event “passport” to be stamped at stations throughout the store for access to medical experts as well as heart-healthy tips on physical activity and nutrition. Participants with a completed passport, or all station stamps will qualify for a drawing for a $250 Macy’s gift card.
