National Wear Red Day Toolkit
The Heart Truth®—a national awareness campaign for women about heart disease—created and introduced the Red Dress as the national symbol for women and heart disease awareness in 2002 to deliver an urgent wakeup call to American women.
National Wear Red Day® promotes the Red Dress® symbol and provides an opportunity for everyone to unite in The Heart Truth's® life-saving awareness-to-action movement by putting on a favorite red dress, red shirt, or red tie. The Red Dress Pin is now available from WomenHeart: The National Coalition for Women with Heart Disease, a partner of The Heart Truth.
Plan an event for National Wear Red Day 2016, which will take place Friday, February 5! Join the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute (NHLBI), the Office on Women's Health (OWH), U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), and many other groups to promote National Wear Red Day in your local community.
Together, we will continue to urge women to protect their hearts, as heart disease is the #1 killer of women.
Use this toolkit for information and ideas to help celebrate National Wear Red Day 2016—around town, at work, in the media, and through social networks—and take advantage of our helpful resources like free promotional materials that you can use for your observance.
