Morgan Stanley Wealth Management Hosts Fourth Annual Go Red Women’s Leadership Breakfast Recognizing National Wear Red Day And Go Red For Women® Campaign

Morgan Stanley Wealth Management Women’s and Multicultural Financial Advisors’ Forums ( www.womenfaforum.com, www.multiculturalfaforum.com) will partner with the American Heart Association (AHA) – Westchester and Fairfield Counties, to host the fourth annual Go Red Women’s Leadership Breakfast at the Firm’s Westchester campus on National Wear Red Day, Friday, February 1.

The breakfast, open to the public, will feature a conversation with Diana Nyad, author, journalist and long-distance swimmer noted for her world-record endurance championships, and will be hosted by Douglas J. Ketterer, Head of U.S. Field Management, Morgan Stanley Wealth Management. Media personality, Harriette Cole will moderate.

“We are pleased to again host this leadership breakfast, which helps raise awareness and empower women to take charge of their heart health,” said Ketterer. “I’m particularly looking forward to hearing from Diana. It’s our hope that her story of courage and unwavering commitment will inspire attendees to conquer whatever may seem impossible in their own lives.”

In September, 2011, much of the country followed Nyad as she attempted to swim the 103 miles between Cuba and Florida without a shark cage - but the effects of potentially deadly box jellyfish stings eventually compromised her swim after 41 hours. Though an attempt a year later was also called off after 51 hours due to life-threatening lightening storms, Nyad intends to keep trying until she completes the entire 103 miles.

In 1979, Nyad swam from the Bahamas to Florida, setting a distance record for non-stop swimming without a wetsuit that still stands today. She has broken numerous world records, including the 45-year-old mark for circling Manhattan Island (7 hrs, 57 min) in 1975. She was inducted into the National Women's Hall of Fame in 1986 and the International Swimming Hall of Fame in 2003.

“We know that Diana will inspire women to use their power and strength to make changes in their lives,” said Gregory Plage American Heart Association Executive Director, “We commend Morgan Stanley for shining a spotlight on heart disease – the number one killer of women.”
