Mix 105.1 Challenges You To Go Red For Women

Mix 105.1 supports the National Go Red For Women movement.

January 25, 2019

The American Heart Association, the leading voluntary health organization devoted to a world of longer, healthier lives, together with its Go Red for Women movement, are asking you to ‘wear red and give’ to support Go Red for Women on National Wear Red Day: Friday, February 1, 2019.

Why wear red and give? Heart disease is the No. 1 killer of women, taking more lives than all forms of cancer combined. Someone you know and love may be affected – at any age. Heart disease and stroke claim the lives of 1 in 3 women – a third of our mothers, sisters and friends. It’s time to change this fact.

That’s why the American Heart Association’s Go Red for Women movement, nationally and locally sponsored by CVS Health and locally sponsored by Lifespan, Blue Cross & Blue Shield of Rhode Island and Fidelity Investments, encourages you to show your support by wearing red and giving on Friday, February 1 to help raise awareness and save lives from heart disease. Here’s how you can join us in support of women’s health:

  • Wear red to raise awareness about heart disease – the leading cause of death in women. You can get the iconic Red Dress Pin at ShopHeart.org.
  • Make a donation to support the lifesaving work of the American Heart Association at WearRedDay.org or at your local CVS Pharmacy, February 3- 23.
  • Take action for your heart health. To help women better understand their risk for heart disease, CVS Health is offering no cost heart health screenings every Thursday in February, including Valentine’s Day, at CVS MinuteClinics nationwide.
  • Join the conversation by using #WearRedAndGive on social media.
