Red is one of my favorite colors. That’s why I wear it every day here on FatFighterTV. 🙂 And on Friday, I will wear red beyond this site. I will wear it to fight heart disease in women. Friday is the American Heart Association’s (AHA) National Wear Red Day, part of the AHA’s Go Red For Women campaign. It’s a time to celebrate the passion and power we women have to band together to wipe out heart disease and stroke.
Here’s how the Go Red movement started. Many women dismissed heart disease as something that only older men have. Not true.
As a way to dispel the myths and raise awareness that heart disease is the number one killer of women, the AHA created Go Red For Women.
So… get up, go through your closet, and pick something red to wear Friday. Let’s all come together to fight heart disease in women, okay?
