National Wear Red Day

Happy National Wear Red Day!

National Wear Red Day occurs on the first Friday in February to help raise awareness of the dangers of heart disease to women.  Cardiovascular disease is the number one killer of women in the country, so in 2004 the American Heart Association (AHA) started the Go Red for Women Campaign to inform women of the dangers of this silent killer.

Each year, companies and organizations across America join forces to raise awareness and money to support education and research. Women can find information about diet choices and exercise routines to help lower their risk, and anyone who wears red this weekend will receive a special 20% discount at Macy’s stores.
