Colorado/Wyoming District employees show their support of National Wear Red Day.

To help raise awareness of heart disease among women, the American Heart Association organized the first National Wear Red Day on the first Friday in Feb. 2003. This year on Feb. 6, employees at the Colorado/Wyoming District office showed their support of the continuing effort toward heart disease awareness by wearing red, the official color of the campaign.

According to the Association, 1 in 3 women die of heart disease and stroke each year. That can change, however, through education and lifestyle adjustments that can help prevent up to 80 percent of cardiac events.
