Friday, Feb. 7 is National Wear Red Day, as part of American Heart Month throughout February, and wanted to see if you might be able to help us spread the word.
On this day, the American Heart Association encourages everyone to wear red and bring attention to the silent killer of women, and the No. 1 killer of women, and all Americans. By wearing red, we are raising our voices, and encouraging others to get educated about cardiovascular risk and take action to live a longer healthier life. One in two men and one in three women are at risk for heart disease, and research shows that poor lifestyle is a major contributor.
It’s our goal to have the entire city go red. So far we have confirmation that the Lake Eola Fountain is turning red, along with the Lynx building, Aloft hotel downtown, and the Solaire. We’re working on more, but we would love for you to share and join in on the movement!
We’re also asking people to share their efforts on our Facebook page —
