Actress keeps on dancing for American Heart Association
Cuban-born actress Malillany Marín, who lost a grandfather and a grandmother to heart disease, survived another week on the dance floor as a contestant in Univision’s hit show, ¡Mira Quién Baila! Ten celebrities compete for a grand prize of $185,000 to donate to the charity of their choice.
Marín is raising funds for the American Heart Association’s Go Red Por Tu Corazón movement. Now in its fourth season, ¡Mira Quién Baila! (Look Who’s Dancing!) is a reality dance competition similar to ABC’s Dancing with the Stars. Marín supports Go Red Por Tu Corazón, the sister cause of Go Red For Women, to raise awareness in Hispanic women that heart disease is their No. 1 killer. Marín, who has high blood pressure, has made several positive lifestyle changes, including eating more nutritious foods, doing yoga and managing her stress.
Viewers can help fight heart disease and support Marín by calling the phone number provided for her at the end of each show. You can also vote by Tweeting #MQBMalillanyvota. Tune in to the show each Sunday at 8 p.m., EDT to support Marín and Go Red Por Tu Corazón.
