The Bollywood Babes team is made up South Asians women and men who are committed to their own well-being and those of their families. Unfortunately, people of South Asian descent have four times the risk of heart disease compared to the general population, and they develop the disease up to a decade earlier.
So for these reasons, we have decided to JUMP IN For Women’ Heart Health!
Throughout September we will participate in a 30-day activity challenge where we will get active for 30 minutes a day for 30 days- all in support of women’s heart health at the university of Ottawa Heart Institute!
By committing to this challenge we are not only taking care of US, we are investing in Women’s heart health at the University of Ottawa Heart Institute. Through this initiative, we will help start the conversation and raise awareness for women and heart disease. The immediate and long-term benefits for women’s heart health will be addressed through unique and unparalleled programs, services, and research initiatives offered at the University of Ottawa Heart Institute.
We hope you can join us and others participating by making a donation or joining our team!
Thank you for your support and making a difference!
