10 Fun Ideas for National Wear Red Day

On Friday, February 7th, millions of women across the country will wear red in support of National Wear Red Day. Started 10 years ago by the American Heart Association, National Wear Red Day is an annual event to raise awareness of the #1 killer of women. Heart disease kills more women than all forms of cancer combined, taking the life of one in three women each year, but studies have shown that only one in five women believes heart disease is her greatest health threat. By wearing red on National Wear Red Day, we’re speaking out against his silent killer and raising awareness for prevention and treatment. Not to mention wearing red is a fun and easy way to spread the news! Click through for 10 ideas for wearing red on National Wear Red Day.
