Go Red For Women’s National Wear Red Day® – FUNRaise to Fight Women’s #1 Killer–Heart Disease!
National Wear Red Day® is Friday, February 3, 2017
Why Go Red? Heart disease and stroke cause 1 in 3 deaths among women each year, killing approximately one woman every 80 seconds. Fortunately, we have the power to change that because 80 percent of cardiac and stroke events may be prevented with education and action.
You can help raise awareness and fund the fight against heart disease and stroke by joining the American Heart Association’s National Wear Red Day on Friday, February 3rd!
By doing so you help support educational programs to increase women’s awareness and critical research to discover scientific knowledge about cardiovascular health.
To join National Wear Red Day’s fight against heart disease and stroke, please complete and return the Wear Red Day Registration Form today! You will receive a Wear Red Day Event Kit containing posters, newsletters, and “red dress” pins, wristbands, or stickers. On Wear Red Day, ask employees, coworkers, friends and neighbors to donate $5 or more, and dress-down, dress in red, and/or wear a “red dress” pin, wristband or sticker to help raise awareness and show support for those affected by heart disease and stroke.
Kits will be delivered from December-February, so sign up early to a jump start on Go Red FUNraising! Thanks for your support! Download form here.
Our mission is to be a relentless force for a world of longer, healthier lives. For nearly 100 years, we’ve been fighting heart disease and stroke, striving to save and improve lives. Heart disease is the No. 1 killer worldwide, and stroke ranks second globally. Even when those conditions don’t result in death, they cause disability and diminish quality of life. We want to see a world free of cardiovascular diseases and stroke.
