That's the number of women that are killed each year from cardiovascular disease. But up to 80% of these cardiac events can be preventable. Wear Red Day is not only about wearing red, but also raising awareness and educating our community on cardiovascular disease. Wear Red Day encourages women to stand together and take charge of their own heart heath. Because when we stand together, we can change history and inspire all women to be heart healthy- for our mothers, daufhters, sisters, and friends.
The American Heart Association is dedicated to further reducing the risks that cardiovascular disease poses to today's and tomorrow's generation. Yet despite our efforts, heart disease remains the number 1 killer of women. And one is too many.
We hope you will join us as we turn Lehigh Valley Red as we raise awareness, education, and critical funds for the women- and men- in your life.
