Go Red for Women Day

My husband sent me this in a e-mail; it's the first I'd heard of it, but it sounds pretty cool. I'm going to do it, anyway . . .

Friday, Feb. 6, is Go Red for Women day.

By wearing red on Friday, you are acknowledging the American Heart Association's call to women to take charge of their heart health and live stronger, longer lives.

Heart disease and stroke are the No. 1 and No. 3 killers of women. They are two of the many cardiovascular diseases that kill nearly 500,000 women each year. That's more than the next seven causes of death combined, including all forms of cancer. Fortunately, you personally can do a lot to prevent these killers. Go Red For Women helps you discover unique lifesaving power by learning about heart disease and stroke and taking positive action to reduce your risk of both. Red is the American Heart Association's color for women and heart disease. Make it your color, too.

So wear RED on Friday, February 6.

Go Red! ...for your Heart, your Health, your Life.
