Go Red Sunday
With the help of churches in greater Philadelphia area, Go Red Sunday raises awareness around women and heart disease by bringing health messaging to churches throughout the city. Churches host a Go Red Sunday service during Heart Month in February or any Sunday of their choice. So far over 50 churches have participated, reaching over 8,000 women in 2013.
