According to the Go Red For Women website, National Wear Red Day occurs in America on the first Friday in Feb. each year, where people wear red to show awareness and support for the cure of heart disease.

People are encouraged to wear red on Friday, Feb. 7 to celebrate the American Heart Association National Go Red For Women campaign. The red dress has become the iconic symbol of our battle against heart disease in women since red is the color of our heart.

Heart disease has been called the "silent killer" of women in the United States, claiming more lives than all forms of cancer combined. For more than 10 years, the American Heart Association has sponsored National Wear Red Day to raise awareness in the fight against heart disease in women.

Since the first National Wear Red Day in 2003, tremendous strides have been made in the fight against heart disease in women. Through research and education, there have many positive changes in the effort to decrease heart disease in women.

Even with the progress and research made in previous years, heart disease is still the No. 1 killer of women, killing almost 1,100 a day. But what’s more powerful than the killer? Millions of mothers, sisters, daughters and friends speaking up. And everyone can do that on Feb. 7 by wearing red.

Don’t be silent about the "silent killer." Wear red on National Wear Red Day, Feb. 7, 2014.
