Finding Motivation

Ever since NewsChannel5 became Cleveland’s Go Red For Women media partner, its employees have taken the message to heart.

Colleen Seitz, Executive Producer
“I watched my mom change her lifestyle later in life. At 70, she acts and looks like she could live forever. I know I have a lot of living still to do and I want to make sure I stay as healthy as she is ... for myself and for my daughter.”

Moreen Bailey Frater, Community Affairs Director
“My mom is my greatest inspiration for a healthy lifestyle. When I was growing up, she cooked meals from scratch. Today, when my busy weeks expand into busy weekends she reminds me, ‘Take time for yourself, take a day and rest; because when you have your health you have everything.’ ”
Phyllis Sossi, Sales Marketing Manager
“Since our station signed on as the TV partner for Go Red For Women, I became even more aware of the reasons to drop weight, get in shape and keep my heart healthy. With my son serving in the Marines as my inspiration and support, I lost 40 pounds through Weight Watchers and started exercising regularly. I recently walked my first half-marathon.”

Sylvia Gonzalez Cardwell, Design Director
“I’ve learned the goal of the Go Red movement — energy, passion and power. What a great goal. What a great celebration of life. And red is a great color for every woman. Now, I work out even if I have to force myself, because it makes me feel like I can take on my day.”
