The American Heart Association, the leading voluntary health organization devoted to a world of longer, healthier lives, together with its Go Red for Women movement, are asking you to wear red to support Go Red for Women on National Wear Red Day: Feb. 5.

Despite the devasting impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, heart disease remains the leading killer of women in the U.S., according to the American Heart Association’s newly released 2021 Heart Disease & Stroke Statistics. At the same time, recent market research has indicated that the youngest most diverse women are the least aware that cardiovascular disease (CVD) is their greatest health threat.

Here’s how your audience can support women’s health:

- Wear red on Feb. 5.

- Take a picture of you, your family, friends or colleagues wearing red.

- Post on social media with the hashtag #WearRedDay and #LVGoRed.

- To donate, text GoRedLasVegas to 41444.

For information on the Las Vegas Go Red for Women movement or Luncheon, call (702) 789-4370 or visit their website.
