LeTourneau faculty, staff, students wear red for reason

LONGVIEW, TX (KLTV) - Break out the red! Friday, women wore red and raised money for the American Heart Association's Go Red for Women.

Heart disease is the number one killer of women.

LeTourneau University faculty, staff, and students learned about the role of assessment tools, and a walking program to promote heart-healthy lifestyles.

"It's never too late to become healthier and to enjoy life more,"said Terri Deike, with LeTourneau University. "So our focus here, especially with me being in athletics and my father being a heart disease survivor, is to help introduce to women healthy ways to live."

Deike says that with the assessment tools and the walking program, women will have information to give to their doctor to help figure out how healthy their heart is.
