National Wear Red Day is Friday, February 7th, 2020!
February is designated as American Heart Month, and on the first Friday of every February is National Wear Red Day for Women. Heart disease is the No. 1 killer of women, killing more women than all forms of cancer combined. 1 in 3 women dies of heart disease and stroke each year. We ask you to wear red to raise awareness about cardiovascular disease.
Here is what it means to GO RED.
G: GET YOUR NUMBERS
Ask your doctor to check your blood pressure and cholesterol.
O: OWN YOUR LIFESTYLE
Stop smoking, lose weight, exercise, and eat healthy. It’s up to you. No one can do it for you.
R: REALIZE YOUR RISK
We think it won’t happen to us, but heart disease kills one of three women.
E: EDUCATE YOUR FAMILY
Make healthy food choices for you and your family. Teach your kids the importance of staying active.
D: DON’T BE SILENT
Tell every woman you know that heart disease is our No. 1 killer.
