Let’s Unite to prevent heart disease and stroke by wearing RED to spread awareness.

Join us as the nation comes together igniting a wave of RED from coast to coast. From landmarks to news anchors and neighborhoods to online communities; this annual groundswell unites millions of people for a common goal: The eradication of heart disease and stroke.

Heart disease and stroke cause 1 in 3 deaths among women each year – this means women are dying at the rate of one every 80 seconds!

With your support, we can go RED to bring awareness to our #1 killer – Heart Disease.

Please send your RED photos to Colby Bomberowitz.

Why Go RED?

· While 1 in 31 American women dies from breast cancer each year, 1 in 3 dies of cardiovascular disease.

· 64% of women who died suddenly of coronary heart disease had no previous symptoms.

· Cardiovascular disease claims more lives than the next four most common causes of death combined.

· Only slightly more than half of all women are likely to call 911 if experiencing symptoms. And yet, 79% of women said that they would call 911 if someone else was having a heart attack.

· Stroke is the number four cause of death for American women and is a leading cause of serious long-term disability.
