Heart disease is the number one killer in women in the United States. It’s more deadly than most numbers combined.

The Go Red for Women campaign first started in 2004. This month-long campaign focuses on the support and education for women’s heart disease. It helps women stand together and unite against this fatal disease.

The National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute (NHLBI) has teamed up with the AHA to showcase the Go Red for Women campaign during Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week in New York City on Feb. 6. It’s anticipated to be a star studded event, as it always is year after year.

Celebrities walk down the runway, showing off the Red Dress Collection. This year’s celebrities include Olympians Lindsey Vonn and Sasha Cohen along with Vanna White and Bella Thorne.

Americans everywhere are encouraged to take the Go Red Challenge on Feb. 7. Simply wearing red can help raise awareness about cardiovascular disease and encourage the fight for better health in women.
