This means women just like you — mothers,
sisters, friends — are dying at the rate of one
per minute. In fact, in the time it takes to read
this, another woman will die from heart disease.
It simply does not have to be that way. At the
American Heart Association, we work every day
to fund research and fight this killer so more
women can be saved. But we need your help.
This National Wear Red Day, join our mission
to ensure we never have to deny research
that could save a woman’s life. Help raise
the funds needed for lifesaving educational
programs and the development of new
treatments to fight heart disease.
On February 4, 2011, Make It Your Mission to
Save Lives. Together we can make a difference.
Celebrate National Wear Red Day.

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