National Wear Red Day, February 4th 2011...

Did you know...                                                                                                                                                                       
That heart disease is still the No. 1 killer of women, taking the life of 1 in 3 women each year?

Did you know…
That heart disease claims the lives of over 433,000 American women each year?

Did you know…
That we can make a difference?

The American Heart Association’s Go Red For Women® works every day to fund research and fight this killer so that more women can be saved. But they need our help. Please celebrate National Wear Red Day® on Friday, February 4, or any day to raise awareness about heart disease among women and the funds to ensure the research that could save a woman’s life
never has to be denied.

The American Heart Association uses all revenues from local and national Go Red For Women activities, like National Wear Red Day, to support awareness, research, education and community programs to benefit women. These funds help women by offering educational programs, advancing women’s understanding about their risk for heart disease and providing tools and motivation to help women reduce their risk to protect their health.

It is their mission and belief that together we can make a difference. This February 4th 2011 we can join their mission, raise funds and rally support to fight this silent killer.
