National Wear Red Day set for February 4th | News, Sports, Jobs

HARRISBURG — The American Heart Association, the leading global volunteer organization dedicated to fighting heart disease and stroke, is rallying women across Central PA “Reclaim your rhythm” on Friday, February 4th as part of the association’s Go Red for Women National Wear Red Day.

The Heart Association encourages women to do so “Crank up the tunes, get your groove on and wear red to raise awareness about the prevalence of heart disease in women and donate to save women’s lives.”

Experts say the impact of COVID-19 is likely to affect cardiovascular health and mortality rates, directly and indirectly, physically and emotionally, for many years to come. That’s why the American Heart Association’s Go Red for Women movement, sponsored nationally by CVS Health, along with National Wear Red Day Matching Sponsor Big Lots, is urging women to take action today to be healthier tomorrow.

Through the Go Red for Women movement, the American Heart Association encourages people to take action by:

* Wearing red on National Wear Red Day to raise awareness of cardiovascular disease. The iconic red dress pin and other clothing items are available at

* Make a donation to support the American Heart Association’s life-saving work on Big Lots and the Big Lots Foundation will match online donations up to $333,333 on National Wear Red Day.

*Visit CVS Health and donate at checkout. Donations can also be made online at

* Participate in Research Goes Red, a joint collaboration between the American Heart Association’s Go Red for Women and Verily’s Project Baseline to directly engage more women in research.

* Join the discussion by using #WearRedDay, #HeartMonth and #GoRedforWomen on social media and by tagging @AHAPennsylvania on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
