Event Description:

Wear Red Day is an important part of the Go Red For Women goal to build awareness and urge women to take concrete actions to reduce their risk of heart disease, and to raise necessary funds for research and education.  By joining with hundreds of other individuals and organizations taking part in Wear Red Day, you can help us continue our efforts.

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

Why Take Action

  • Heart disease is not just a man’s disease. Each year, 1 in 3 women die of heart disease and stroke.
  • 80 percent of cardiac events can be prevented.
  • Heart disease and stroke kill more women than men.
  • Cardiovascular diseases are the leading cause of death for African-American women.
  • Hispanic women are likely to develop heart disease 10 years earlier than Caucasian women.
  • 90% of women have one or more risk factors for heart disease or stroke.
  • Raising your voice and sharing how you or your loved ones have overcome heart disease is the strongest action you can take. Go Red For Women is encouraging all women who have been impacted by heart disease to speak red by telling their personal stories of diagnosis, treatment and survival against women’s No. 1 killer.

Women are strong. We are smart. We solve problems. Women can do anything men can do. And, there are some things we’re even better at – dying of heart disease and stroke. Like breaking barriers? Go Red! And help break the one against heart disease. When it comes to beating heart disease and stroke, change can be the cure. Make a change at GoRedForWomen.org.
