Wear red for heart health

Go Red For Women on National Wear Red Day. Go Red For Women is a nationwide movement celebrating the energy, passion and power women have to band together and wipe out heart disease.

Too few people realize that heart disease is the No. 1 killer of women — and of men — but the good news is that heart disease can largely be prevented. Spreading the “Go Red For Women” message empowers women to love — and save — their hearts through lifestyle choices and actions.

National Wear Red Days Feb. 3. On that day, millions of Americans will be wearing red to show their support for women and the fight against heart disease. By wearing red on National Wear Red Day, it helps the American Heart Association raise awareness of heart disease and inspire women to take charge of their heart health.

National Wear Red Day has its own dress code. On this day, participants are encouraged to Go Red in their own fashion. Wear your favorite red clothes or accessory — a red blouse, red lipstick, a red dress lapel pin (the symbol of women’s heart health) — carry a red handbag or sport a red tie and red socks … and show some heart for heart disease prevention.

Join the millions of Americans wearing red on Feb. 3 and encourage others to do the same. It’s a simple, powerful way to improve women’s heart health. For more information, visit www.goredforwomen.org, or call the American Heart Association at 1-888-MY-HEART (1-888-694-3278).
