A Crowning Achievement for International Pageants and Go Red For Women

International Pageants and the Go Red For Women movement team up to promote

women's heart health

ROANOKE, Va., May 13 /PRNewswire/ -- International Pageants, Inc., the managing group for the Mrs. International(R), Miss International(R) and Miss Teen International(R) competitions, has teamed up with the American Heart Association's Go Red For Women movement to fight heart disease among women. The Go Red For Women movement helps women understand that while heart disease is their No. 1 killer, it is largely preventable. In support of this movement, the International Pageants system will incorporate Go Red For Women's resources for preventing heart disease, stroke and other cardiovascular diseases in their international campaigns.

"We are delighted to work with International Pageants to raise awareness of heart disease among women," said American Heart Association Chairman of the Board, Gary L. Ellis. "International Pageants embraces our mission and is committed to a long-term grass roots campaign supporting our education initiatives."

Working at a local level, each contestant in the International Pageants system will bring the Go Red For Women messages to their communities. With the amount of women who participate in the competitions on a yearly basis, the alliance between International Pageants, Inc. and Go Red For Women is a natural connection. International Pageants includes approximately 150 Queens internationally, ranging in age from 13 years-old to 56 years-old. The pageants highlight the many successes and charitable causes each contestant supports throughout the year.

"As a platform based competition, we have always believed in the concept of social responsibility, both locally and internationally," said Mary Richardson, executive director of International Pageants, Inc. "Partnering with the American Heart Association is a great honor and we look forward to relaying their messages worldwide."

The Go Red For Women movement will be introduced to the 2008 pageant contestants at the International Competition kick-off events held in Chicago in July. During the kick-off events, the contestants will attend a Go Red themed affair, learn about the American Heart Association's mission and meet representatives from the organization.
