Go Red For Women, Raise Awareness For Heart Disease Feb. 3

Jan. 24, 2017

Go Red for Women, continuing the fight against heart disease

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 red with jeans and make a $5 donation on Feb. 3.

Friday, Feb. 3, is your chance to join your Webster colleagues and people from all over the country in fighting heart disease in women. 

For donations of $10 or more, you will be entered in a drawing to receive a wellness prize. Of course, donations in any amount are welcome.

Donations can be made online until Friday, Feb. 3. If you prefer to drop your donation off at a physical location, the Human Resources Office on the ground floor of Loretto Hall is the designated site. 

Funds raised by Go Red support educational programs to increase women’s awareness about their risk for heart disease and critical research to discover scientific knowledge about cardiovascular health. Funds will also count towards Webster's fundraising goal.

On behalf of Webster Wellness, thanks for your support. If you have any questions, please contact wellness@webster.edu.
