Friday, February 2, is National Wear Red Day!

Millions of Americans will be wearing red to show their support for women and the fight against heart disease.
Go Red in Your Own Fashion. Find your own way to take part in the fight against heart disease. Whether it’s visiting your healthcare provider, eating a healthier diet, increasing your exercise, purchasing products that support the cause, or wearing red on National Wear Red Day, take some action to love your heart. Below are two ideas:

This VERY affordable four-color, 100-page magazine cookbook was created for every woman who wants to take charge of her heart health. Love Your Heart makes cooking heart-healthy recipes at home easy and rewarding for women and those they love. For only $3.99, you can have these 45 new recipes, lots of helpful cooking tips, and inspiring stories from heart disease survivors. Starting on February 6, the cookbook magazine is available at supermarket checkout stands (while supplies last.) The cookbook complements the American Heart Association’s Go Red For Women movement, which educates women about heart disease as their No. 1 killer and provides useful resources to help prevent it.

2.) Take the challenge
This year, Go Red For Women is challenging one million women to love their hearts and take the latest online Go Red Heart CheckUp at www.GoRedForWomen.org. This important tool forecasts a woman’s 10-year risk for heart disease and also gives tips to help women reduce their risk.
