Friday is National Wear Red Day, an initiative that aims to draw attention to the No. 1 killer of women: Heart disease.
The Go Red for Women movement wants to save women’s lives by speaking up about women and heart disease. To do this, the group is encouraging everyone to go red Friday.
“Going Red” is as easy as putting on a red dress, a red tie or a red dress pin – just wear red to show your support!
Right now, one in three women die of cardiovascular disease and 90 percent of women have one or more risk factors for developing heart disease in the future, according to the American Heart Association. That’s why the American Heart Association’s Go Red For Women movement is calling on women and men to speak up about this largely preventable disease.
Never miss a local story.
February is American Heart Month and Friday is National Wear Red Day so speak up for your heart by wearing red. Whether it’s a red dress or a red tie, show that you support the fight against this silent killer.
