Jenny Craig – now known simply as Jenny – has announced it will be nationally supporting the American Heart Association's My Heart. My Life. initiative that will include participation by Celebrity Brand Ambassador Mariah Carey.
Committed to combating the overwhelming health issues caused by weight-related diseases, Jenny is supporting the American Heart Association’s My Heart. My Life. initiative by launching a multi-faceted program in the coming year, including PSAs, community programs, education and online activations. Today, anyone can visit jennycraig.com to get a link to the American Heart Association’s My Life Check, a simple questionnaire that evaluates your heart health and potential risk for heart disease.
Mariah Carey will serve as Jenny’s lead Brand Ambassador throughout this initiative and is excited to encourage and inspire others to live healthy, happy, active lives. “I feel like Jenny and the American Heart Association together is the beginning of a world class alliance,” said Carey. "An alliance that can help change things for the better.
“As an artist, I use my voice to entertain. But, today I want to use my voice to draw attention to a serious matter. Two-thirds of the country is placing themselves at risk for heart disease and diabetes. Largely, that is due to unhealthy eating patterns and lack of physical activity. I obtained a greater understanding of this when I was pregnant with my twins and dealing with my own health issues. That’s why I feel so strongly about working with Jenny and the American Heart Association to help Americans get serious about their health as it pertains to these issues which are so important.”
Dana Fiser, Global CEO of Jenny, is proud of Carey’s weight loss accomplishment and excited to have her on the team. “We are thrilled for Mariah’s success on our program, and are so impressed by her passion and dedication to helping other people get healthy and live their best lives,” said Fiser. “We stand united, hand in hand with Mariah and the American Heart Association, to create significant changes for future generations.”
