Erlanger’s Chattanooga LifeStyle Center Raised Money For American Heart Association

Saturday, February 16, 2013

Fifteen male “models” from Erlanger’s Chattanooga LifeStyle Center raised $4,047 for the American Heart Association “Go Red for Women” initiative by walking the runway and showing off some of their talent during this year’s Fashion Show with a Twist. 

 

Audience members paid $1 per vote for their favorite contestant.

  “Best of Show” and highest “money maker” were awarded to General B.B. Bell, playing alter ego, General Georgia Patton, by rounding up her troops to fight heart disease. 

 

All proceeds from the voting, silent auction and live auction on February 11 were donated to the American Heart Association. 

 

The national “Go Red for Women” campaign aims to spread the word that heart disease is largely preventable.  Just by leading a healthy lifestyle, such as following a heart healthy eating plan, getting regular physical activity, maintaining a healthy weight, and not smoking, women can lower their risk by as much as 82 percent. 

 

Erlanger’s Chattanooga LifeStyle Center, located at 325 Market Street, is the site of Erlanger’s cardiac rehabilitation program.  The program combines education, exercise and lifestyle changes in a three-phase program to help men and women who have been diagnosed with heart disease to return to an active, productive life.
