Heart disease is the No. 1 killer of women in the United States, claiming more lives than all forms of cancer combined. For more than 10 years, the American Heart Association has sponsored National Wear Red Day® to raise awareness in the fight against heart disease in women.

Celebrate National Wear Red Day® with Go Red For Women on Friday, Feb. 7, 2014, to help fight women’s No. 1 killer—heart disease. Join the movement nationwide and learn how you can honor women like you on this important day on the website below:

We encourage everyone to participate by wearing red on Friday, February 7th, to raise women’s awareness of cardiovascular disease and empower women to reduce their risk.

We are proud to be joining the AHA and concerned companies and organizations across America in the fight against the #1 killer of women – as well as of men. Wear Red Day is a chance for us to arm ourselves with knowledge about this devastating disease and to raise funds that will help the AHA advance its research and education efforts.

If you would like more information or would like to donate to the American Heart Association, please visit their website,

Thank you in advance for supporting this lifesaving program!
