National Wear Red Day in Fanwood and Scotch Plains

February 7, 2014 at 11:21 AM

FANWOOD, NJ - Heart disease is the No. 1 killer of women in the United States, claiming more lives than all forms of cancer combined.  For more than 10 years, the American Heart Association has sponsored National Wear Red Day to raise awareness in the fight against heart disease in women. 

It may not be at the top of most women’s to-do lists, but caring for your heart through a healthy diet and regular physical activity is considered the secret weapon to preventing heart disease. Preventative power lies with real lifestyle changes that can reduce the risk for heart disease by as much as 80 percent. Click here to find out how.

Additionally, Fanwood Borough Hall will be a sea of red tonight in support of National Wear Red Day.

Dear Editor:
