How to Celebrate National Wear Red Day 2017

14th Annual National Wear Red Day


The American Heart Association is encouraging everyone to wear red the first Friday in February to support Wear Red Day and increase awareness of heart disease and stroke.
                     
Sadly, heart disease and stroke claims the lives of one in three women – almost one death per minute. The exciting news is that nearly 80 percent of cardiac events in women can be prevented, if the right choices are made.

Wear Red Day is a component of Go Red For Women, the American Heart Association’s national campaign to raise awareness of heart disease in women. One day a year, what you wear really can be a matter of life and death. Millions of Americans will choose to wear red  first Friday in February, and show their commitment to the fight against heart disease and stroke.

During February, American Heart Month, the American Heart Association is sponsoring activities, including Wear Red Day, to build awareness, raise funds and help women live longer stronger lives. The American Heart Association is urging everyone to wear red in recognition of mothers, sisters and friends who have suffered from heart disease.



Why go Red?

Heart disease and stroke cause 1 in 3 deaths among women each year, killing approximately one woman every 80 seconds.  Fortunately, we can change that because 80 percent of cardiac and stroke events may be prevented with education and action. That’s why this year we are asking that you wear red on National Wear Red Day®  Friday, February 3, 2017, encourage others to do the same and make the time to Know Your Numbers. Five numbers, that all women should know to take control of their heart health are: Total Cholesterol, HDL (good) Cholesterol, Blood Pressure, Blood Sugar and Body Mass Index (BMI). Knowing these numbers can help women and their healthcare provider determine their risk for developing cardiovascular diseases.
