Show Off Your Red

Every year, The Heart Truth® and its supporters continue to raise awareness about heart disease in women to encourage them to take action and improve their heart health. On National Wear Red Day®, February 6, 2015, thousands of people, men and women, raise their voices in support of heart disease awareness and prevention, in efforts to help women learn their risk for heart disease. Show your support by wearing something red—a red dress, sweater or scarf—and encourage your neighbors, coworkers, friends and loved ones to do the same.

Join us on this national movement and help us give a wakeup call to all women about the importance of knowing their risk for heart disease, the #1 killer of women. We want women to know that making small healthy changes to their everyday life can help them lead heart healthy and productive lives.

Use this toolkit to invite others to wear red with you. The materials included―a poster, flyer, newsletter ad, pre-drafted content for social media platforms, and Web banners―feature women like you who are speaking up about heart disease risk.

The Heart Truth’s #4MyHeart is an interactive challenge designed to help you lower your risk for heart disease. Take action, starting today, to protect your heart. Track your progress and share your success with us on Facebookexternal disclaimer, Twitterexternal disclaimer, and Pinterestexternal disclaimer using #4MyHeart.
