You’re probably thinking, “Lady in Red?” Is that a Chris DeBurgh reference? It is. However, this blog entry will have a different spin on ladies in red.
In case you didn’t know, today is National Wear Read Day.
The Heart Truth—a national awareness campaign for women about heart disease—created and introduced the Red Dress as the national symbol for women and heart disease awareness in 2002 to deliver an urgent wakeup call to American women. The Red Dress reminds women of the need to protect their heart health, and inspires them to take action. National Wear Red Day promotes the symbol and provides an opportunity for everyone to unite in this life-saving awareness movement by showing off a favorite red dress, shirt, or tie, or Red Dress Pin.
One of the best ways of taking precautionary steps to lead a healthier lifestyle is simply by being aware. Today, I’m showing my support by sporting a red turtle neck. Will you?
