10-second pledge for life

SUGARLAND Shoppingtown is urging customers to take 10 seconds to make a pledge that could add 10 years to their lives as part of the Heart Foundation's annual Go Red for Women campaign.

From today until close of business Sunday, customers are invited to visit a booth near Williams in the centre, where they can make the pledge to lead a healthier life and combat the number one killer of Australian women - heart disease.

Pledgers will be asked to take time out for themselves to get a heart health check and improve their family's health.

Participants will also have their pledge photo taken in a photo booth.

"As 75% of our customers are women, it's important to show support for this cause by explaining that a happier and healthier life could be just 10 seconds away," centre marketing executive Katey Young said.

"We encourage all our customers to ... make the pledge to improve their heart health."
