Go Red on National Wear Red Day!

We invite you to join us as we don our signature color (red) for Wear Red Day, Friday, February 6th, in support of the American Heart Association's "Go Red For Women" campaign. This campaign was created to raise awareness about the dangers of heart disease in women.
Did you know that heart disease is still the number one killer of women?  As one of the largest women's social organizations, our participation in Go Red For Women can potentially save the life of a Sister, family member or friend. Knowledge is power, and the truth is that heart disease does not discriminate. It affects women of all shapes and sizes all around the world. However, it is preventable with just a few healthy changes.

We encourage you to read through the 
American Heart Association's Go Red For Women website, watch these informative videos, and join us as we go red on National Wear Red Day. The best part is you can participate anywhere you are!
