This 2017 Lincoln Go Red for Women event was jam-packed with individuals and companies who donated their time and treasure to creating a world without heart disease and stroke. But two attendees’ devotion to the American Heart Association’s live-saving mission shined brighter than the rest – Jill Duis RN and Erin Starr RN.
The pair have donated years of their time to the Go Red for Women movement and took it upon themselves to host an inaugural Go Red event in Fairbury, Nebraska in 2013. Now in its fourth year and known as the Jefferson County Go Red for Women, the event has become one of the highest fundraising events, per capita, in the state of Nebraska. Duis is JCH&L’s diabetes educator and infection preventionist. Starr is JCH&L’s chief quality officer.
The fourth annual Jefferson County Go Red for Women event is set for Saturday, February 17, 2018, at the Fairbury Elks Lodge. Tickets are now available by calling 402-587-0495.
