February 4th is the National Wear Red Day! You have probably heard of Go Red for Women or the American Heart Association but what does is all mean?
Go Red for Women is a campaign designed and created to bring awareness to the #1 killer of women….Heart Disease. Did you know that heart disease kills more women then all cancers combined? According to the American Heart Association, “heart disease kills one in three women each year – that’s approximately one woman every minute.”
They also press that there are a several misconceptions about heart disease in women that could be putting you at risk. The American Heart Association’s Go Red For Women movement advocates for more research and swifter action for women’s heart health for this very reason.
And for that reason, we hope, either man or woman, that you’ll be sporting your red on February 4th! Go Red!
