Wear Something Red to the MET on Sunday

Posted on: January 30th, 2012 by admin

The Heart TruthHeart disease is still the number one killer of women, causing 1 in 3 deaths each year. More women die of cardiovascular disease than from the next four causes of death combined, including all forms of cancer. But 80 percent of cardiac events in women could be prevented if women made the right choices for their hearts involving diet, exercise and abstinence from smoking.

Each year on the first Friday in February, thousands of hospitals, small businesses, multinational corporations, news broadcaster, schools, individuals and even landmarks “Go Red” to help raise crucial awareness and significant funds in the fight against heart disease in women.

There are many ways to show support on National Wear Red Day or any day throughout the year – from simply wearing red to helping organize an event at your workplace, school or local organization.
