It’s officially here today is the perfect day to wear red for a wonderful cause.
Red Shoes, Red Sweater, Red Dress or a Red Tie it doesn’t matter as long as you show your support and get involved.
Heart disease is still the No. 1 killer of women, taking the life of 1 in 3 women each year. Women are dying at the rate of one per minute because they don’t know what you know: heart disease kills.
In 2004, the American Heart Association (AHA) faced a challenge. Cardiovascular disease claimed the lives of nearly 500,000 American women each year, yet women were not paying attention. In fact, many even dismissed it as an “older man’s disease.” To dispel the myths and raise awareness of heart disease as the number one killer of women, the American Heart Association created Go Red For Women – a passionate, emotional, social initiative designed to empower women to take charge of their heart health.
Go Red For Women encourages awareness of the issue of women and heart disease, and also action to save more lives. The movement harnesses the energy, passion and power women have to band together and collectively wipe out heart disease. It challenges them to know their risk for heart disease and take action to reduce their personal risk. It also gives them the tools they need to lead a heart healthy life.
