Wear Red for Heart Disease Feb. 1

| January 24, 2013

“Go Red”

Heart Disease is the number one killer of women, affecting more women than men and causing more deaths than all forms of cancer combined. Webster Wellness is teaming up with The American Heart Association by participating in the 10th annual National Wear Red Day on Friday, Feb. 1, 2013.

This is the one day each year dedicated to building awareness of risk by raising funds for research and education on behalf of women everywhere. To show your support, donate $1 to wear red, or $5 to wear jeans.

Donations will be collected on main campus by:

Jennifer Stewart, University Center
Susan Napoleon, Sverdrup room 230
Francine Case, Academic Affairs, Loretto Hall 151
Lilo Whitener-Fey, Admissions, Webster Hall 140
Paula Eschmann, Human Resources, Loretto Hall 32
Library Front Desk

For our extended campuses who wish to participate: check your Go Red Flyer for your campus representative who will be collecting donations. You can still volunteer to collect donations for your campus by emailing wellness@webster.edu.

Be sure to submit photographs of your support for Go Red for Women Day as well!
