Today is National ‘Wear Red Day’ in Support of Women’s Heart Health!
It’s safe to say that one of the many ways we express ourselves is through the clothes we wear. Communicating our moods, conveying personality traits, it’s all right there for anyone to see. For that very reason, many charitable organizations have turned to clothing campaigns to increase support and general knowledge about serious health concerns. The CURE Breast Cancer Foundation’s Denim Day has seen great success and today’s “Wear Red Day” is no different.
Canada’s Heart & Stroke Foundation has been raising awareness on women’s heart health for over 50 years. Through various campaigns, the foundation has taught us that heart disease is the #1 killer of women. We can all do our part to support a cause that affects every one of us, like canvassing to raise money, participating in a local event, and, easiest of all, wearing red today. Sporting your best reds will encourage women to protect their hearts and reminds us all to do our part in caring for our most vital organ. The month of February is Heart Month in Canada, so do some research to see how you can contribute. In a nutshell, dig out your brightest scarlet shades today and be sure to take care of that ticker of yours with plenty of activity, healthy eating and a regular visit to your doc!
