Join us on Sunday, February 4th as we Wear Red to raise awareness about heart disease, the leading cause of death in the U.S  We’re proudly joining The American Heart Association, and the National Institute of Health and The Heart Truth for Women wearing red to support heart disease prevention and encourage you to make heart health a part of your self-care routine in 2024! You can help protect your heart against heart disease with self-care, like moving more, eating healthier, managing stress, not smoking/vaping, and getting enough quality sleep.  Devoting a little time every day to care for yourself can go a long way toward protecting your heart health.  When we take care of our hearts as part of our self-care, we set an example for those around us to do the same.   This Sunday, sport your favorite red clothing and show your heart some love!  Click here for more information: External link opens in new tab or windowwww.nhlbi.nih.gov/ourhearts 


Can’t celebrate with us on this Sunday’s Wear Red Day? Don’t worry, February is American Heart Month, which means you can celebrate all month long.  Supporting women’s health (and men’s isn’t just important on a certain day or month. We need to raise our voices about cardiovascular disease being a woman’s and man’s greatest health threat all year long. Go Red in February and then find ways to support your health and well-being every day, in ways that work for you.  External link opens in new tab or windowwww.nhlbi.nih.gov/heartmonth

 


 

Wear Red Sunday – February 4, 2024

 

The Wellness Ministry would like to remind you that National Wear Red Day is almost here! Grab your friends and get red-y. We are asking you all to wear red to help promote American Heart Month on the 1st Sunday in February to bring greater attention to heart disease as a leading cause of death for Americans.


February is American Heart Month

You have the power to take action to protect yourself against heart disease. Small heart-healthy actions like adding more movement to our day or choosing healthy foods, can have a big impact on protecting #OurHearts.
