The 6th Season of Heart to Start Portland brings together Women’s Heart Wellness with the local Heart to Start community for a monumental kickoff! Can you say, ‘MIRNAVATOR’?!?

Our annual Heart To Start program is collaborating with our BE FIT goals and Women’s Wellness initiatives to provide a wonderful evening to celebrate women’s health, heart health and the 6th Season of Heart to Start – Portland. Participants will enjoy a selection of heart-centered interactive activities to include a cooking demonstration, mindfulness breath and meditation, blood pressure checks and inspirational conversations.

We are ecstatic to welcome back our keynote speaker for the evening, Mirna Valerio. Mirna helped kick off our 2015 Heart To Start season and made a tremendous impact on our local community. Since her visit, she has continued to spread her inspiration across the nation and begins her new book release tour in October 2017. Mirna will share a reading from her book, A Beautiful Work in Progress, and update us on her amazing personal success and outreach to others via her social media alias Fatgirlrunning. Her book will be available for purchase and signing at the event.

In line with our focus on overall wellness, our Heal it Forward campaign continues to weave itself into programs offered through Providence Cardiac Prevention + Wellness. Together, with our friends from Women’s Tea & Talk, we are providing a wonderful opportunity for attendees to pay it forward with a donation drive for Rose Haven located in Portland. See below for items we will be collecting at the event.

“Rose Haven serves women and children experiencing the trauma of abuse, loss of home and other disruptive life challenges. Rose Haven’s mission is to maintain a safe, respectful community while providing our guests with support and services to assist them in regaining stability in their lives.”

Please consider healing it forward with a donation for Rose Haven. Items currently needed include: personal hygiene supplies (travel and full size options), socks for women and children (all ages, all sizes), undergarments for women and children (all ages, all sizes).

THE FIRST 50 ATTENDEES WHO BRING A DONATION FOR ROSE HAVEN RECEIVE A FREE COPY OF MIRNA’S BOOK!
