AAWCC / AHA National Wear Red Day Feb. 6

National Wear Red Day at MCC, Monday February 6, 2006

“Close To Your Heart”  

The American Association for Women in Community Colleges (AAWCC) invite the college community to participate in “GO RED FOR WOMEN” to support the American Heart Association’s groundbreaking national movement designed to help raise women’s awareness of cardiovascular disease and empower women to reduce their risk.

Too few people realize that heart disease is the No.1 killer of women – and of men-- but the good news is that heart disease can largely be prevented. To get more facts about Women and Heart Disease go to ""

To be a part of this national awareness movement AAWCC invites everyone to donate $5.00 and wear “RED” on “National Wear Red Day” at MCC Monday, February 6. Wearing “Red” includes: a red dress, hat, scarf, tie, socks, red dress pin, and/or red lipstick. Red represents the color of a pulsing and vibrant life. The MCC goal is to raise $1,500 which is an increase over last year’s inaugural campaign total of $765. Your $5.00 donation may be made in tribute or in memory of a loved one who suffered or suffers from heart disease. Display your Tribute Card(s) to increase awareness.  Tax receipts will be provided and a “GO RED FOR WOMEN” sticker showing your support.

To further raise awareness, a Photo Shoot is planned for “college hour” National Wear Red Day at MCC at both the Brighton and Damon City Campuses.
