Omaha goes red for women

Omaha goes red for women”

The city of Winston-Salem will officially kick off National Wear Red Day at the 10th annual Winston-Salem Goes Red Breakfast.

Why is it National Wear Red Day?

If you're a woman, The American Heart Association says, you should know your Total Cholesterol, HDL (good) Cholesterol, Blood Pressure, Blood Sugar, and Body Mass Index (BMI). One way to raise awareness is through National Wear Red Day.

Women (and men) across America will be color-coordinating today for National Wear Red Day 2018, which aims to dispel myths surrounding heart diseases. This year, they have a goal to raise $2,000,000.

The easiest way to participate is by simply wearing red.

There is an online pledge for women can join to take action in the fight against women's heart disease and stroke.

Heart disease causes 1 in 3 deaths. One in three women die from the disease.

Research, medical developments and education have helped mortality rates drop more than 50 percent over the past 30 years. There will be a fashion show, photo booth, drinks, light bites and a 20 percent storewide discount during the event.
