National Wear Red Day, February 1

Susan Woda (copyright 2008  M.Woda)Friday February 1, 2008

Go Red For Women is the American Heart Association campaign to wipe out heart disease, the #1 killer of women. 

One in three women gets heart disease, according to their website.   I have no doubt that I’m very much at risk, so this really caught my attention.  The goal of Go Red For Women is a 25% reduction in coronary heart disease and stroke risk by the year 2010.

I learned about National Wear Red Day at Macy’s in Annapolis Mall when I saw a sign indicating that shoppers wearing RED on Friday, February 1, will get an extra 15% off their purchases of apparel and accessories. 

Geoffrey Beene, like Macy’s, is supporting the Go Red For Women movement by donating 10% of the price you pay for men’s dress shirts, cufflinks or neckwear purchases throughout February.  And Brighton will donate $5 from the sale of each Go Red For Women bracelet sold from January 12, 2008 to February 15, 2008 and asked retailers to match that donation.  Campbell Soup, Clairol, Hamilton Beach, Pepperidge Farm and several other businesses also have promotions supporting Go Red For Women in February.

What can YOU do to protect yourself from this killer?  Well, here are a few suggestions from the American Heart Association:

1.  Start by visiting their website to join Go Red For Women. 

2.  Take the Go Red Heart Checkup.

3.  Talk to your doctor.

4.  Donate to Go Red for Women.

5.  Urge Lawmakers to support the HEART for Women Act by signing the online Red Dress Paper Doll Petition.

6.  Choose to Move.

7.  Eat healthy.

I joined today and I hope you will, too.  And let’s all wear RED on Friday, February 1.
