‘National Wear Red Day’ for Women in Support of Fight Against Heart disease
Lite Rock 96.9 WFPG encourages you to be the lady in red today!
National Wear Red Day For Women is a massive national public awareness day the first Friday each February, urging women, people from all walks of life, businesses, towns, schools, the media, buildings and landmarks to “go red” and “glow red” to bring attention to the No. 1 and No. 5 killers of women – heart disease and stroke.
Today, February 6, help us turn South Jersey and America RED and SAVE WOMEN’S LIVES from heart disease and stroke by wearing something red … a red dress, tie, jacket, scarf, hat, blouse or shirt. Go Red For Women and show your commitment to reducing risk, improving health, and saving women’s lives.
Since the first National Wear Red Day® in 2003, we’ve made tremendous strides in the fight against heart disease in women. Through research and education to healthy lifestyle changes, we’re proud that:
Nearly 90% have made at least one healthy behavior change.
More than one-third has lost weight.
More than 50% have increased their exercise.
6 out of 10 have changed their diets.
More than 40% have checked their cholesterol levels.
One third has talked with their doctors about developing heart health plans.
Today, nearly 300 fewer women die from heart disease and stroke each day.
Death in women has decreased by more than 30 percent over the past 10 years.
