Wear Red Day, hosted by the American Heart Association, works to educate others on how heart disease is the No. 1 killer of both men and women. 

For women, who have a higher risk for dying from heart disease and stroke, it accounts for nearly 1 of every 3 deaths in the U.S.

You can show support by wearing red on Friday, February 3.

Share your photos on social media using the hashtag #GBGoesRed.
