Last week, Ruby® was proud to be a sponsor for the American Heart Association’s annual Go Red for Women Luncheon at Portland’s Governor Hotel. Rubys from almost every department including virtual receptionists Whitney M., Rachel R., and Tasia P. joined hundreds to support awareness for heart disease. Cardiovascular disease claims the lives of 1 in 3 women every year — it’s actually the leading cause of death for women in the U.S.!
Our virtual receptionist service is mainly made up of women, and many of us know someone who has been affected by this disease, so we were grateful for the opportunity to give back to this worthy cause. The event also included free health screenings where we got to learn about our individual risks and provided resources for taking charge of our heart health. We were especially touched to hear survivor stories and motivational speaker Donna Hartley‘s inspiring keynot address.
