Friday February 7, 2020
On the first Friday of every February, which is designated as American Heart Month, 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.
It's easy to make a difference — and have fun at the same time! All you need to do is:
Wear Red – To raise awareness, let’s turn the world red. Choose a red shirt, dress, pants, hat, tie, scarf, or even socks. Wear red alone or join together with friends and colleagues to make a statement for a great cause.
Give – Help raise awareness that heart disease is the greatest threat to women and encourage them to take action. Every dollar makes a difference in the fight against heart disease – the leading cause of death in the world.
Open your heart and contribute to the American Heart Association’s efforts to help build healthier lives, free of cardiovascular diseases and stroke. Your gift can change lives: Nearly 80 cents of every dollar donated is spent on research, education and community outreach.
