Go Red for Women - Cast of Stomp

Attack a killer by wearing red on Friday, Feb. 7. Heart disease and stroke are the leading killers of women in the USA, and they kill more women than men each year. The American Heart Association is promoting Go Red for Women on Friday, Feb. 7 to raise awareness of heart disease and stroke in women.

I'm warning you in advance so you can properly select your red ensemble.

And what is one of the best things you can do for your heart while wearing red (or any old time)? Moderate intensity exercise such as brisk walking. Wear red and get ready to walk!
