National Wear Red Day is February 4

Make it your mission to fight heart disease in women by participating in the American Heart Association's program, Go Red for Women. Wear red on Friday, February 4th and make a donation.

Why should you get involved? Because heart disease is still the No. 1 killer of women. Because there are so many women who still don't know what you know - that heart disease kills. And because we need to keep funding research that helps save the lives of the women we love.

Begin by setting up a fundraising page as an individual or group, or for your school or workplace. You can also search for and contribute to the fundraising page of someone you know. Donations support research, awareness, education and community programs to help women live longer heart-healthy lives. Your may also make a donation as an individual. Last year, more than 17,000 companies went Red - will you or your company be one of them this year?
