Pledge to wear Red! February 6, 2015!
February is American Heart Month and to raise awareness, February 6th, we wear red!
Wearing the color red represents strength, joy, and power and symbolizes the fight against heart disease in women.
- One in three women die of heart disease or stroke every year
- Education and lifestyle changes can prevent 80 percent of cardiac events
Go Red For Women! It’s important that we raise awareness that heart disease is not just a man’s disease and to stop and honor those who are struggling with heart disease. We also want to celebrate the advances we’ve seen over the years against heart disease and stroke.
