National Wear Red Day: February 6th, 2015

Show your support for the prevention and treatment of cardiovascular disease by wearing red on February, 6th 2015! Whether you wear red at your workplace, school, or gym we very much appreciate your effort in helping to raise awareness about the dangers of heart disease and stroke, which kills 1 in 3 women year-round.

You can also show your support by saving the date and attending the “Tacoma Go Red For Women” luncheon which will take place on April, 28 2015 at the Museum of Glass! See this link for details: http://tacomagoredluncheon.ahaevents.org/

Since the first National Wear Red Day in 2003, we’ve made tremendous strides in reducing the risk of heart disease and stroke in women:

  • Today nearly 300 fewer women die from heart disease and stroke each day
  • Death in women has decreased by more than 30 percent over the past ten years

These are just a few examples of how Go Red For Women has made a difference and helped save women’s lives. But there’s still more work to be done. Now is your chance to join the movement. Through your financial support, you can help end heart disease and stroke in women. Your donations not only build awareness about the risk factors of heart disease in women, but they also support critical research that promotes heart health. Make your donation to Go Red For Women and let’s take action against heart disease and stroke.
