Southwestern Connecticut supports Wear Red Day for Women
Friday is Wear Red for Women Day, which is sponsored by the American Heart Association. The goal is to let Americans know that heart disease is the number one killer among women.
Participants in the National Wear Red for Woman Day are being asked to wear their favorite red items, be it clothes, shoes or lipstick to help spread awareness about heart disease.
