  • Hamilton urging everyone to wear red one day next month

The 5th annual Red Dress Dash starts at 8:30 a.m. Indianapolis firefighters are expected to participate as well as past winners of the American Heart Association's "Real people".

Nearly a decade of years ago, the American Heart Association presented "Go Red for Women", a movement providing information to women about cardiovascular disease.

That's why we ask that you wear red on National Wear Red Day and encourage women to make the time to "Know Your Numbers", which include: cholesterol, blood pressure, blood sugar and body mass index (BMI). Volunteers knitted the red hats themselves and have delivered them to metropolitan hospitals for the babies to wear.

There will be events going on all week for Go Red For Women. The American Heart Association (AHA) and its program, Go Red for Women, puts the spotlight on heart disease in women each February.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, in the United States one in four women die from heart disease as many women remain unaware of heart disease as a risk factor when considering their wellness. Select a favorite outfit in red and register by February 9 to attend the Go Red for Women event. It is a nationwide campaign that aims at inspiring women to take action for better heart health. Sanford Health, El Riad Shriners and the American Heart Association are all teaming up to put it on.

More than 800,000 people in the US die from heart disease, stroke and other cardiovascular diseases each year.

Don't smoke, drink in moderation, and focus on getting exercise are some of the top three suggestions given by physicians for cutting down on the risk of developing a heart disease.
