National Wear Red Day

Posted:

MADISON (WKOW) -- Friday, February 1, 2013 is National Wear Red Day. It's an all out effort to raise awareness and support for heart disease. The American Heart Association says, heart disease is still the number one killer of women in the United States. Heart disease also effects many men in the U.S.

Officials with the Go Red for Women movement say, even if you can change one thing like taking the stairs instead of the elevator, you can improve your health and help make a difference for yourself. Officials are asking that everyone wear something red today to show support for the cause.

One thing you can do to improve you heart health is exercise. On Friday, the Wake Up Wisconsin team was joined by Katy Meuer from Go Red for Women. She shows some heart healthy pilates and yoga moves that can make a difference.
