Thanks to Big Red Kitchen for this post!
It is time to get your red on! Friday, February 5, 2010, is National Wear Red Day®—a day when Americans nationwide will take women’s health to heart by wearing red to show their support for women’s heart disease awareness. The Red Dress®, the national symbol for women and heart disease awareness, was created by The Heart Truth® in 2002 to deliver an urgent wakeup call to American women.
Join The Heart Truth on National Wear Red Day to help spread the critical message that "Heart Disease Doesn't Care What You Wear—It's the #1 Killer of Women.®" Everyone can participate in the national movement by wearing their favorite red dress, shirt, tie, or Red Dress Pin on Friday, February 5, 2010. For more information on how to get involved, visit the National Wear Red Day toolkit which provides useful information and resources that you can use to help celebrate National Wear Red Day in your community.
