Soroptimist International of Fillmore promoting Go Red for Women
Benefit will help women’s hearts

Members of the Soroptimist International of Fillmore are helping in the efforts of the American Heart Association Go Red For Women movement to raise awareness of heart disease, the No. 1 killer of women. They are recruiting local individuals and companies to join millions across the nation in going red on Friday, February 6, National Wear Red Day, to support the fight against heart disease.

On National Wear Red Day, millions of Americans wear red to show their support for women and the fight against heart disease. Companies nationwide generate awareness and raise funds to help fight heart disease in women by asking their employees to donate $5 to wear red to work. Money raised will benefit research and education to help reduce the incidence of heart disease in women.

Wear Red Day is a component of Go Red For Women, the American Heart Association’s national movement to raise awareness of heart disease in women and encourage women to take charge of their health.

“Wear Red Day is an opportunity for everyone to remember their friends and family members who have suffered from the disease. It’s also a time to think about their own hearts and take charge of their own health", said Terri Aguirre, Go Red Chair.
