Tomorrow is National Wear Red Day. National Wear Red Day supports the Red Dress as the national symbol for women and heart disease awareness. On the first Friday in February each year, women and men across the country can unite in the national movement to give women a personal and urgent wake up call about their risk of heart disease. Everyone can participate by showing off a favorite red dress, shirt, or tie, or by wearing the Red Dress Pin. The Heart Truth is that heart disease is the #1 killer of American women. In fact, one in three women dies of heart disease. But heart disease can also lead to disability and a significantly decreased quality of life. When you put on that red pin, dress, shoes, purse, hair ribbon or tie tomorrow you will be drawing attention to the high risk of heart disease in women. If you don't have a pin and would like to wear one next year, clink on the link and find out where you can purchase your pin.
