Today, February 7th, is officially National Wear Red Day. Don’t know what that means, or think red just isn’t the hue for you? Think again. National Wear Red Day is a day where women all over the nation wear red somewhere in their wardrobe to spread awareness of heart disease in women.
According to the site GoRedforWomen.org, it states: “National Wear Red Day® — the first Friday each February — is our special day to bring attention to this silent killer of women. We encourage everyone to wear red, raise their voices, know their cardiovascular risk and take action to live longer, healthier lives.”
Now in its 10th year, the movement for Go Red for Women is even stronger than ever! Many celebrities have tweeted their support in the past, urging their followers to #WearRed.
Here are 7 celebrities who support National Wear Red Day:
Celebrity chef Rachael Ray cares just as much about heart disease as she does about her favorite recipes. We’d have to say that that alone is, in the words of Ms. Ray herself, “delish!”
