American Heart Association Wants Women To “Go Red” On Friday

Go Red for Women Day: Heart disease awareness

If it seems like just about everyone is sporting something red today, don't worry, you're not going insane.

The American Heart Association says heart disease kills one in three women or approximately one woman every minute.

The Senate formally adopted a resolution that proclaims February 2018 as American Heart Month and February 2nd 2018 as "Go Red for Women Day".

National Wear Red for Women Day was created in 2003 by the American Heart Association and the National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute.

Peacock denied as emotional support animal for flight
Meanwhile here at home, Air Canada will only allow dogs to board as recognized emotional support or psychiatric service animals. In response, Delta is imposing new, stricter regulations around emotional support animals beginning March 1.

It's the first Friday in February, and you know what that's National Wear Red Day! The goal of this group is to empower women to take control of their heart health. This year, the day is celebrated on Friday, Feb. 2, which also happens to be Groundhog Day.

On National Wear Red Day, individuals, workplaces and organizations are encouraged to wear red to spread awareness of heart disease. There are five "Go Red Commitments", including: get active, eat healthy, monitor your blood pressure, join my research legacy and donate to Go Red. All proceeds go to Go Red for Women.

You can support the fight for heart health by wearing red today and sharing a picture of you, your family, friends, or colleagues going red on social media with the hashtags #WearRedDay, #WIHearts or #GBGoesRed.
