The Nation Comes Together In February
National Wear Red Day: Friday, February 7, 2020
On the first Friday of every February, which has been designated as the American Heart Month, the nation comes together, igniting a wave of red from coast to coast. From landmarks to news anchors and neighborhoods to online communities; this annual groundswell unites millions of people for a common goal; the eradication of heart disease and stroke.
American Heart Month, a federally designated event, is an ideal time to remind Americans to focus on their hearts and encourage them to get their families, friends and communities involved. The first American Heart Month took place in February of 1964. It was proclaimed by President Johnson, via Proclamation 3566, on December 30, 1963. The Congress, by joint resolution on that date, requested the President to issue annually a proclamation designating February as American Heart Month. While it is a federally designated month in the United States, it is so important for everyone to realize that cardiovascular disease knows no borders.
GO RED FOR WOMEN is the American Heart Association’s global initiative to end heart disease and stroke in women. Launched in 2004 to close the gap in awareness, Go Red quickly expanded into a worldwide movement dedicated to removing the barriers women face to achieving good health and wellbeing. Heart disease is the number one killer of women, killing more women than all forms of cancer combined. 88% of women worry about their mom’s health.
