Coldwell Banker D’Ann Harper, REALTORS® is proud to support this important cause that encourages awareness of women and heart disease.

This National Wear Red Day®, Feb. 2, 2018, will mark 16 years since the initial National Wear Red Day®, which was first observed to bring national attention to the fact that heart disease is the #1 killer of women, and to raise awareness of women’s heart health. Looking back on all that has been accomplished, the American Heart Association® has made great strides including:

  • Nearly 90% of women have made at least one healthy behavior change.
  • More than one-third of women have lost weight.
  • More than 50% of women have increased their exercise.
  • 6 out of 10 women have changed their diets.
  • More than 40% of women have checked their cholesterol levels.
  • One third of women have talked with their doctors about developing heart health plans.
  • Today, nearly 300 fewer women die from heart disease and stroke each day.
  • Death in women have decreased by more than 30% over the past 10 years.

Go Red For Women

go-red-for-women-logoSupport Go Red For Women by participating in National Wear Red Day® on Friday, February 5, 2016 and donating to help fund research during American Health Month. Coldwell Banker D’Ann Harper, REALTORS® is proud to supporting this important cause that encourages awareness of the issue of women and heart disease.

Why Go Red? Heart disease and stroke cause 1 in 3 deaths among women each year, killing approximately one woman every 80 seconds.  Fortunately, we can change that because 80 percent of cardiac and stroke events may be prevented with education and action. That’s why this year we are asking that you wear red on National Wear Red Day® and Donate to Go Red For Women. By doing so you help support educational programs to increase women’s awareness and critical research to discover scientific knowledge about cardiovascular health.

And don’t forget to make your heart health a priority. Schedule your Well-Woman Visit, a prevention check-up to review a woman’s overall health so her doctor can measure blood pressure, check cholesterol and look for signs of heart disease, stroke and other illnesses. Then encourage others through your social channels to do the same using the hashtags, #GoRedWearRed and #WellWomenVisit.

1 in 3 women die of heart disease and stroke each year. So we encourage you to join movement to end heart disease and stroke in women because it’s not just a man’s disease. Here’s what it means to Go Red:

G: GET YOUR NUMBERS

Ask your doctor to check your blood pressure and cholesterol.

O: OWN YOUR LIFESTYLE

Stop smoking, lose weight, exercise, and eat healthy.

It’s up to you. No one can do it for you.

R: REALIZE YOUR RISK

We think it won’t happen to us, but heart disease kills one of three women.

E: EDUCATE YOUR FAMILY

Make healthy food choices for you and your family.

Teach your kids the importance of staying active.

D: DON’T BE SILENT

Tell every woman you know that heart disease is our No. 1 killer.

Go Red For Women!

Heart disease is the No. 1 killer of women and is more deadly than all forms of cancer. The good news is that 80% of cardiac events can be prevented with education and lifestyle changes.  Since it began in 2003 tremendous strides have been made. Now, 34% fewer women die from heart disease, saving 330 lives every day. Yet, with all of the successes, heart disease is still killing almost 1100 women a day. Funds raised support educational programs and critical research about cardiovascular health.

To show our support, Coldwell Banker D’Ann Harper, REALTORS® is “Going Red for Women” on February 6th. $5.00 donations are also being collected at each office (which is tax deductible). Join us in showing your support and make sure you wear your red!
