Support Go Red For Women by participating in National Wear Red Day! Why Go Red? Cardiovascular diseases in the U.S. kill approximately one woman every 80 seconds. The good news is that 80 percent of cardiac events may be prevented with education and lifestyle changes. Go Red For Women advocates for more research and swifter action for women’s heart health.
Wear Red Day is a one-day nationwide awareness and fundraising campaign for women’s heart health. Join thousands of organizations in the fight against women’s number one killer–heart disease on National Wear Red Day! How does it work? Volunteer to be your organization’s Wear Red Day coordinator, register and then receive the kit to help you create a Wear Red Day to remember! On Friday, February 2, 2018, we ask employees all around the country to dress in red and donate $5 to the Go Red For Women campaign to support women’s heart health awareness, research and advocacy. Make it fun by organizing a heart-healthy pot-luck, lunchtime walk or lunch & learn.
If your company or organization will Go Red and Wear Red on Friday, February 2, 2018, please register online to receive your official Wear Red Day materials! Thank you for supporting the American Heart Association’s Go Red For Women National Wear Red Day!

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.
