CFCU to Celebrate National Wear Red Day

Did you know that heart disease is the leading cause of death for women in the U.S.? Each year, 1 in 3 women die of heart disease and stroke. The good news is that 80 percent of cardiac events can be prevented with education and lifestyle changes. With the right information, education and care, lives can be saved.

To help raise awareness and funds to help fight cardiovascular disease, Community Financial team members will be wearing red on February 5th. The campaign is part of the American Heart Association’s 13th Annual National Wear Red Day, in which participants wear red, make a donation to join the Go Red For Women® movement and receive a red dress pin, all to help raise awareness of heart disease.

Community Financial will also provide Go Red Snack Bars inside all branches on National Wear Red Day. Members are invited to grab a healthy snack and learn more about heart healthy habits and the Go Red for Women movement at these stations.

Heart disease awareness has increased over recent years, but most women fail to make the connection between heart disease risk factors and their personal risk of developing the disease. Go Red For Women has been educating and connecting hundreds of thousands of women with knowledge and tools to help them make lifesaving choices. More than 650,000 women’s lives have been saved and 300 fewer women are dying per day. For more information about National Wear Red Day visit GoRedforWomen.org.

And don’t forget to show your support and wear red on February 5 to Go Red For Women! Together we can make a difference.
