National Wear Red Day
Did you know? Women are less likely to get CPR. Heart attacks appear to be on the rise in younger women. And cardiovascular disease – including heart disease and stroke — is the No. 1 killer of women, claiming more women’s lives than all forms of cancer combined.
The good news is that cardiovascular disease is largely preventable by making smart, healthy choices no matter your age.
We’re proud to support Go Red for Women by the American Heart Association, a movement to build healthier lives for women locally and globally. Go Red with us for your heart and the women in your life.
National Wear Red Day is Friday, February 5. Red sweats, red hat, red shoes… however you Go Red, show it off to raise awareness that cardiovascular disease is the biggest health threat for women. Show your red on social media using #goREDwa #GoRedForWomen. Tell women you know that heart disease is preventable by making simple lifestyle choices. Share your story if you are a heart disease or stroke survivor. Want to help save more lives? Give to the American Heart Association or host your own fundraiser in support of Go Red for Women.
