The American Heart Association is encouraging everyone to wear red the first Friday in February to support Wear Red Day and increase awareness of heart disease and stroke.
                       
Sadly, heart disease and stroke claims the lives of one in three women – almost one death per minute. The exciting news is that nearly 80 percent of cardiac events in women can be prevented, if the right choices are made.

Wear Red Day
is a component of Go Red For Women, the American Heart Association’s national campaign to raise awareness of heart disease in women. One day a year, what you wear really can be a matter of life and death. Millions of Americans will choose to wear red  first Friday in February, and show their commitment to the fight against heart disease and stroke.
 
During February, American Heart Month, the American Heart Association is sponsoring activities, including Wear Red Day, to build awareness, raise funds and help women live longer stronger lives. The American Heart Association is urging everyone to wear red in recognition of mothers, sisters and friends who have suffered from heart disease.
