Support Go Red For Women by participating in National Wear Red Day on Friday, Feb. 2. But why Go Red?

Cardiovascular diseases in the U.S. kill approximately one woman every 80 seconds. However, 80 percent of cardiac events may be prevented with education and lifestyle changes. Go Red For Women advocates for more research and swifter action for women’s heart health.

Wear Red Day is a one-day nationwide awareness and fundraising campaign for women’s heart health where thousands of organizations join together in the fight against women’s number one killer: heart disease. Volunteer to be your organization’s Wear Red Day coordinator, register and then receive the kit to help you create a Wear Red Day to remember. On Feb. 2, employees all around the country can dress in red and donate $5 to the Go Red For Women campaign to support women’s heart health awareness, research and advocacy. Make it fun by organizing a heart-healthy pot-luck, lunchtime walk or lunch and learn.

If your company or organization will Go Red and Wear Red, register online to receive your official Wear Red Day materials.
