This is a blog post we are overjoyed to write! Earlier this year M/I Homes joined the Go Red for Women Movement by the American Heart Association. M/I Homes agreed to make a $100 donation to the movement for every home sold during a certain time frame this year.
Our involvement in the movement has come to a close and we couldn’t be more excited to share the results! On a national scale, M/I Homes sold 723 homes and therefore raised a whopping $72,300 for the Go Red movement! In Indianapolis, 71 homes were sold allowing us to contribute $7,100 for the cause!
Go Red for Women is a movement we feel passionate about here at M/I Homes Indianapolis. Heart disease is the #1 killer of women and an estimated 43 million women in the U.S. are affected by the disease. Even so, only one in five women say they believe heart disease is their greatest health risk. Go Red for Women is making great progress at changing that!
Women who Go Red are more likely to make healthy choices:
• More than 33% have lost weight
• More than 50% had increased their exercise
• 60% have changed their diets to become more heart healthy
• More than 40% have checked their cholesterol levels
• 33% have talked with their doctors about developing healthy heart plans
We want to sincerely thank all the Indianapolis area homebuyers who chose to build with us while this program was going on (and all the time, of course)! Making a difference in the fight toward better heart health for women is something we’re passionate about, and we couldn’t do it without all of you!
