Coach June Daugherty recently spoke at the American Heart Association's Go Red For Women Luncheon held in Seattle. Daugherty is a major advocate for healthy heart awareness. As a survivor of sudden cardiac arrest, she has become one of the nation's most visible spokeswomen, filming a nationally-aired commercial, speaking at fund-raisers and helping WSU sponsor the inaugural "Cougs Have Heart" basketball game this past season to raise awareness for heart disease.
The luncheon raised an estimated $240,000 for the American Heart Association to continue educating women on fighting heart disease, and funding women-specific research related to cardiovascular disease.
