The American Heart Association Raises Awareness About Heart Disease, the No. 1 Killer of Women
Friday, Feb. 7, 2014 is National Wear Red Day, the one day a year when red becomes the most fashionable color in West Michigan. The American Heart Association encourages area residents to show their support for the Go Red For Women movement by wearing red that day. Whether it is a red dress, a red t-shirt, a red dress pin or red lipstick, the American Heart Association hopes you’ll support the movement to save women’s lives.
Since 2004, Go Red For Women has captured the energy, passion, and intelligence of women to work collectively to wipe out heart disease – the No. 1 killer of women. The association wants millions of women across America to take heart disease personally. There is no cost for participating and there is information and downloadable materials at www.GoRedForWomen.org or call 1-888-MY-HEART (1-888-694-3278) Go Red For Women is sponsored nationally by Macy’s.
