National Wear Red Day! Strides to a Woman’s Healthy Heart!

31 Jan

Heart and Stroke Foundation - The Heart Truth ...

The Red Dress®, the centerpiece of The Heart Truth®, is a red alert that inspires women to take action to protect their heart  health. The primary message driving The  Heart Truth campaign is: “Heart Disease Doesn’t Care  What You Wear—It’s the #1 Killer of Women.

February 1st is the 10th anniversary of National Wear Red Day to raise awareness about Heart Disease. Every year, more women are killed by heart disease than all cancers combined! Each year, on the first Friday in February, millions of women and men come together to wear red, take action and commit to fighting this deadly disease.

Don’t forget to wear RED or your Red dress pin!  🙂

The Heart Truth® is a national awareness campaign for women about heart disease sponsored by the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute (NHLBI).

The Red Dress®, which was introduced in 2002 as the national symbol for women and heart disease awareness.

The Red Dress® is a beautiful reminder that a healthy heart needs to be taken care of and reminds us that action is required to support, access information and help those in need.

To kickoff  NYFALL 2011 Fashion Week, many models, celebrities and designers will put on The Red Dress® Fashion show to their support.

It’s called The Heart Truth’s Red Dress Collection!  Wednesday, February 9th, 2011 at the Theatre, Lincoln Center.  Behind the scenes, there is so much dedication to bring awareness, you wouldn’t think everyone would be nervous, but they are!  See video of last year’s event!

Want to show your support of your awareness of woman heart disease, February 4th is National Wear Red Day!  Women you can wear a red turtleneck, scarf, dress or the Red Dress® pin and men, you can wear a red tie with the pin too!  Simple as that!
