National Wear Red is Friday, February 7
February 06, 2020
On the first Friday of every February, American Heart Month, the country comes together to create a tidal wave of red, raising awareness of cardiovascular disease and stroke in women. #WearRedDay unites millions of people for a common goal: the eradication of heart disease and stroke. Heart disease claims the lives of 1 in 3 women - that’s a third of all mothers, sisters, and friends. It is the number one killer of women; more than all forms of cancer combined. That's approximately one woman every minute!
What Can You Do?
The good news is that 80% of cardiac events can be prevented with education and lifestyle changes. And that’s where the red comes in. Tomorrow, Friday, February 7, is National Wear Red Day! We encourage everyone to show their support for this cause by wearing red to raise awareness about cardiovascular disease and save lives. Be an advocate for education, prevention, and life-saving action.
