Wear something red on Friday, February 7th and show your support for the American Heart Association's Go Red for Women movement.
Macy's is the founding sponsor of the event that raises awareness for heart disease. The retailer is inviting customers to wear red to help bring awareness to the number one killer of women – heart disease.
The 7th is National Wear Red Day, but Macy's customers wearing red from February 5 through February 10 or purchasing the $2Red Dress pin will receive 15 to 20 percent off select merchandise. Macy's is also introducing three exclusive red dresses by Calvin Klein, Kensie and XOXO with 10 percent of the purchase price going to Go Red For Women. Also if you shop at Macys.com you can get a 10-percent discount by putting the code: WEARRED.
Macy's, together with its customers and associates, have raised $46 million for research and education efforts credited by the American Heart Association with helping save 627,000 women's lives since 2004.
The “Go Red For Women” campaign is hosting a variety of events at GoRedForWomen.com. And people are encouraged to share stories about how to become a “Better U.”
Some steps you can take to be a “Better U” include:
Being active for at least 2-and-a-half hours a week.
Include activities that raise your breathing and heart rates and that strengthen your muscles.
Eat a variety of fruits and vegetables every day.
Limit foods and drinks high in calories, sugar, salt, fat, and alcohol content.
