Why Go Red? Heart disease and stroke cause 1 in 3 deaths among women each year, killing approximately one woman every 80 seconds. Fortunately, we have the power to change that because 80 percent of cardiac and stroke events may be prevented with education and action. That’s why you are encouraged to wear red on National Wear Red Day and encourage others to do the same. Know your risk and protect your heart. #WearRedDay or learn more at www.goredforwomen.org
