Cardiovascular disease is the number one killer of women, causing one in three deaths each year. The color red and the red dress have become synonymous with the ability all women have to live healthier lives. To empower women to take charge of their heart health, the American Heart Association created Go Red For Women – a campaign designed to educate, inspire and celebrate women’s health.

  1. If Quicken Loans truly supports women then it will stop supporting Rush Limbaugh. Please do not advertise and support Rush Limbaugh. I also support his right to commentary but a line has to be drawn when he so coarsely targets an individual who also expresses her opinion and uses his access to the airways to do so. It is wrong for him to defame Sandra Fluke and it is wrong for you to support his show!

    1. Hi Carol, due to Rush Limbaugh’s continued inflammatory comments – along with the valuable feedback we have received from our clients and team members – Quicken Loans has suspended all advertising on The Rush Limbaugh radio program.
