NATIONAL WEAR RED DAY® IS FEB. 1, 2013



Mothers, daughters, sisters, aunts — every day, women are dying at the rate of almost one per minute. Show your support for the fight against heart disease in women by wearing red. It’s an easy, powerful way to raise awareness of the No. 1 killer of Hispanic women - heart disease.

"Going Red" is as easy as putting on a red dress, a red tie or a red dress pin. Just Wear Red to show your support. Don't have anything to wear? No problem. Sign up and receive your FREE red dress pin, then wear it proudly.

 

Did you know? On average, Hispanic women are likely to develop heart disease 10 years earlier than other women. Despite the heightened risk, most are still unaware of the threat to themselves and their families. The good news is that heart disease can be prevented.
