February is just around the corner and with it comes thoughts of Valentines (hearts) Presidents Day (Cherries – Lincoln) and it’s National Cherry Month! What do they all have in common? RED, the color red! The first day of February (Friday, Feb 1), is a day to wear red and show your support for Women’s Heart Health.
Pull out the RED: ties, scarfs, sweaters, shoes, lipstick, or whatever you have and join so many across the nation who will don red for the day!
A little more information if you’re interested:
This is the 10th Year of the American Heart Association‘s Go Red For Women® movement — 10 years of fighting to save women’s lives from heart disease. While the progress has been significant, there’s a long way to go. Here’s why:
- Heart disease is still the No. 1 killer of women, causing 1 in 3 deaths each year.
- Heart disease kills more women than men, at an average rate of one death per minute.
- Heart disease kills more women than all kinds of cancer combined.
