National Wear Red Day

Today is National Wear Red Day.
"National Wear Red Day" is held the first Friday in February each year. It is a day when Americans nationwide wear red to show their support for Women's Heart Disease Awareness and is apart of the "Go Red For Women" Campaign of the American Heart Association.

In 2004, the American Heart Association (AHA) faced a challenge. Cardiovascular disease claimed the lives of nearly 500,000 American women each year, yet women were not paying attention. In fact, many even dismissed it as an “older man’s disease.” To dispel the myths and raise awareness of heart disease as the number one killer of women, the American Heart Association created Go Red For Women- A passionate, emotional, social initiative designed to empower women to take charge of their heart health.
