Support Go Red For Women® by participating in National Wear Red Day® on Friday, February 2, 2018 and donating to help fund research during American Health Month. 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.
We couldn’t make positive changes without the support and donations by individuals like you.
Visit your office administrator to make a small donation of $5, or any amount is appreciated. With your contribution we will hang a heart displaying name to share the generosity and hope for saving lives.
February 7th is National Wear Red Day to raise awareness in the fight against heart disease in women.
Did you know that heart disease is the leading cause of death among women over the age of 20 in America? It is actually more deadly than all forms of cancer combined-killing nearly 300,000 women each year. In fact, one in three women will eventually die from this silent killer.
The good news is that 8 percent of heart-related illnesses can be prevented if women make the right choices regarding their health and become educated on the avoidable dangers that put there heart health at risk.
This years fundraising efforts will help raise $2 million that will go directly toward research, education and public awareness efforts to combat heart disease in women.
They are asking for a $5 tax deductible contribution. Each office has a supply of receipts and hearts.
