Go Red For Women, Raise Awareness For Heart Disease Feb. 2

Jan. 26, 2018

Go Red for Women, continuing the fight against heart disease

Webster Wellness invites you to participate 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.”

Feb. 2: Wear red with jeans and make a $5 donation 

Friday, Feb. 2, 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 be entered in a drawing to receive a wellness prize.

Donations can be made online at Webster's National Wear Red Day fundraising page on or before Friday, Feb. 2, that will go directly to the American Heart Association and will count towards Webster’s fundraising goal. Or, if you want to make your donation in cash or check, drop your donation off at the Human Resource Office, Loretto Hall ground floor.
