Cardiovascular disease is the leading cause of death in women, claiming more lives than all cancers combined. Nearly 45% of women over age 20 are living with some form of CVD. Every February the nation goes red to unite millions of people for a common goal: the eradication of heart disease and stroke.

National Wear Red Day is February 2, 2024

Only about half of women are aware that cardiovascular disease is their leading cause of death. Your post could save a life.

Wear red and share on social media to raise awareness. Why? Because losing even one woman to cardiovascular disease is too many. Help us educate everyone with two simple #WearRedDay posts:
