Throughout the month of February, Sundial is partnering with the American Heart Association’s National Wear Red Day to raise awareness about heart disease being the No. 1 killer of women.
Why go red? Cardiovascular diseases, which include stroke, claim the life of a woman about every 80 seconds. But about 80 percent of cardiovascular diseases may be prevented through education and action.
On Friday, February 2nd from 5 until 7pm, Sundial is proud to host a POP-UP dance performance by Florida West Ballet to raise awareness for women’s heart health. Wear red, enjoy a great performance and know your own heart health status.
There will be free blood pressure screenings on our courtyard and a VERY special fashion event from our Sundial retailers that you do not want to miss!
Go Red For Women encourages awareness of the issue of women and heart disease, and also action to save more lives. The movement harnesses the energy, passion and power women have to band together and collectively wipe out heart disease. It challenges them to know their risk for heart disease and take action to reduce their personal risk. It also gives them the tools they need to lead a heart healthy life.
In 2010, the AHA set a strategic goal of reducing death and disability from cardiovascular disease and strokes by 20 percent while improving the cardiovascular health of all Americans by 20 percent by the year 2020. (source GoRedForWomen.org)
