Kentucky goes red in celebration of National Wear Red Day Feb. 1 | Events
(KFVS) - The American Heart Association’s Go Red For Women movement is asking all women in Kentucky to help America Go Red this year.
The 10th Annual National Wear Red Day will be Friday, Feb. 1. The AHA says it’s more important than ever for women to stand side-by-side to end heart disease.
Currently some eight million women in the U.S. are living with heart disease, according to the AHA, yet only one in six women believe that heart disease is her greatest health threat. In fact, 90 percent of women have one or more risk factors for developing heart disease.
To celebrate the day, Kentucky businesses and attractions such as Churchill Downs, Rupp Arena, the Belle of Louisville, 21C Hotel and many others will be staging events and lighting ceremonies throughout the day. For more details on these events, call 502-371-6040.
