Are You Wearing Red Day?

Wear Red Day From Behind the Pen

Have a Heart and Join the Cause!

Celebrated on the first Friday in February, National Wear Red Day, which is Go Red for Women Day, was initiated in 2003 by the American Heart Association. According to the AHA, cardiovascular disease claims the lives of nearly 500,000 American women each year. The Wear Red Day initiative challenges women to know their risk for heart disease and use the tools that the Go Red for Women campaign provides in order to take action to reduce their personal risk.

Tremendous strides have been made since National Wear Red Day was established 10 years ago, but the fight is far from over. Heart disease continues to kill more women than all cancers combined. Honor a heart attack survivor today or remember someone who didn’t, by wearing the color red today, February 1, 2013 to help raise awareness and save lives from heart disease. Feel free to leave the name of someone, whether female or male, “In Honor Of” or “In Memory Of” who was changed by heart disease and show your support for this initiative.
