ALBANY — For six weeks, they wore red every day. They shared educational messages and raised money to change the statistic that heart disease is a woman’s No. 1 health threat.
The Men Go Red for Women campaign concluded on Friday, March 19, and the six participants raised a total of $38,837.00.
The top three fundraisers were: Sean Moloney of Merrill Lynch, who raised $13,008.28; Dave DeMarco of Saratoga National Bank and Trust and Arrow Financial, who raised $10,806.72 and Brain Sheldrick of CAP COM Federal Credit Union, who raised $8,722.40. Charles Amodio of Ferraro, Amodio and Zarecki CPAs; Miguel Molina of Bank of America; and Sean Willcoxon of Mazzone Hospitality were the other Men Go Red participants.
Nicole Leonard and Jackie Sheffer, both of Merrill Lynch, co-chaired the campaign, which is part of the American Heart Association’s Go Red for Women campaign. That campaign raises awareness about women’s heart health, and funds to improve women’s health.
The men will be honored at the 2021 Go Red for Women Luncheon on Nov. 12.
