Go Red on Feb. 5: Wear Red, Wear Jeans, Help Fight Heart Disease

Updated Feb. 9, 2016:

Thanks to the 156 faculty and staff who contributed $1,065 to the Go Red Campaign sponsored by Webster Wellness. These contributions will go to the American Heart Association to support educational programs to increase women’s awareness about their risk for heart disease and stroke as well as support critical research to discover scientific knowledge about cardiovascular health.

For the past several years, Webster University has actively participated in the American Heart Association’s National Wear Red Day campaign, Go Red for Women.

This year’s goal is to raise $1,000 and increase awareness in the fight against heart disease in women. By wearing red and making a donation of any amount, you can be part of raising awareness of what the American Heart Association (AHA) calls “the silent killer.” 

Wear Jeans with a $5 Donation on Feb. 5

Friday, Feb. 5, is your chance to join your Webster colleagues and people from all over the country in fighting heart disease in women. Make a donation of $5 and wear jeans with your red!

For donations of $10 or more, you will receive a red dress pin (while supplies last) that you can wear (or share) to show your support for the Go Red campaign. Of course, donations in any amount are welcome.
