National "Wear Red Day" Is February 1, 2013

  
  
  

I Go Red For Women Word Art Facebook Cover

 

 

Did you know that this Friday, February 1, 2013, is National “Wear Red” Day?

Every year on February 1st, people all over America wear red to raise awareness about heart disease in women. More women die from heart disease each year than die of all forms of cancer combined! We’ll be wearing red here in the office, and we’ll be posting pictures to the Lauren’s Hope Facebook page on Friday featuring Lauren’s Hope team members wearing red to get the word out! Join us in wearing red this Friday, and upload your pictures to our Facebook page to be entered to win a Good Heart Medical ID Bracelet, free from Lauren’s Hope! Details below!*

Top Risk Factors For Heart Disease in Women:

  1. High blood pressure
  2. High blood cholesterol
  3. Diabetes
  4. Smoking
  5. Obesity

According to the American Heart Association, having even one risk factor increases the odds that a woman will develop heart disease. With each additional risk factor, the odds increase. So, check out http://goredforwomen.org/wearredday/ and download the resource flyers. Post them around your workplace, and get involved!

The Contest:

Lauren’s Hope will give away one Good Heart medical ID bracelet on Wear Red Day, this Friday, February 1, 2013. To enter, upload a photo to our Facebook page. The Lauren’s Hope team members who wear red on Friday will get to vote on who wins this contest! So make your photo stand out by getting lots of co-workers to wear red, having several people wear their Lauren’s Hope medical ID jewelry, taking a funny picture, or otherwise making it memorable!

Restrictions: Only one photo per Facebook account. All photos must be rated “PG.”  The winner will be announced at 5 p.m. Eastern this Friday. You must claim your prize within 7 days.

I'm so excited to wear red tomorrow and help raise awareness for heart disease! All of us here at LH are very excited. I'm also looking very forward to seeing our lovely customers wearing red as well. Can't wait!
