You’ve surely noticed, in all those shopping trips this December, that there’s one color dominating the clothing choices: red. And in the approaching Christmas days, as you are shopping, it is a great time to look for red sweaters, tops, dresses and lights to adorn your home or business in honor of National Wear Red Day, Friday February 2, 2018.
National Wear Red Day draws attention to the fact that heart disease is the No. 1 killer of women in America – killing more women than all forms of cancer combined. Most women don’t notice the symptoms of heart disease until it’s too late. By wearing red or decorating the exterior of your home or business red, you will help share the message that heart disease is killing our mothers, daughters, sisters and friends.
For information about how you can participate in National Wear Red Day, call the American Heart Association at 413-335-9044, or email firstname.lastname@example.org. To learn more about your risk for heart disease and stroke, go to www.goredforwomen.org or heart.org.
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.
