Project 30: American Heart Association Go Red For Women January 2013

What could be more fun than dressing up in red and encouraging your friends to take care of their health?  February 1st reminds us each year that not too much tops the American Heart Association’s  Go Red For Women Day! This year I dressed up in red and passed out 10 red dress pins to some of my family and friends.  The Go Red campaign reminds us that heart disease is the number one killer of women, more deadly than all of the forms of cancer combined.  From cutting out sodium to taking the stairs instead of the elevator, there  is also much that we can do to decrease the risk of the number one killer.  To find out more about the factors that increase your risk for heart disease, please visit The Go Red For Women page.
