The Heart Truth® - National Wear Red Day®
National Wear Red Day 2013
It's not too early to start planning your National Wear Red Day events for February 1, 2013. The National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute, the Office on Women's Health, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, and many other groups celebrate the day each year to raise awareness that heart disease is the #1 killer of women and is largely preventable. Host a local National Wear Red Day tribute with your co-workers, with your families, or with your larger community. Find out how with our National Wear Red Day Toolkit.
The Red Dress® and National Wear Red Day
The Heart Truth® created and introduced the Red Dress℠ as the national symbol for women and heart disease awareness in 2002 to remind women of the need to protect their heart health, and inspire them to take action. National Wear Red Day promotes the symbol and provides an opportunity for everyone—men and women alike—to unite in this life-saving awareness-to-action movement by wearing anything and everything red!
