National Wear Red Day – February 5, 2010

Wear red and speak up!

Most of the time, selecting clothing isn’t that critical, but on National Wear Red Day, it’s vitally important.  That’s because wearing red on National Wear Red Day makes a statement about the No. 1 killer of American women – cardiovascular disease – the cause of one in every three female deaths.

Too many women die each year because they are unaware of this vital statistic: one in three women suffers in silence, and almost one woman dies every minute from this largely preventable disease.

By wearing red, we can bring a voice to this silent killer.  We can listen to what our hearts are telling us, talk to our doctors and spread the word to our families, friends and community about making the right choices and taking action.
