For the past several years, Webster University has actively participated in the American Heart Association’s National Wear Red Day campaign, Go Red For Women.

This year’s goal is to raise $1,000 to raise awareness in the fight against heart disease in women. By wearing red and making a donation of any amount, you can be part of raising awareness of what the American Heart Association (AHA) calls “the silent killer.”

Wear Jeans with a $5 Donation on Feb. 7

Friday, Feb. 7, is your chance to join your Webster colleagues and people from all over the country in fighting heart disease in women. Make a donation of $5 and wear jeans with your red!

For donations of $10 or more, you will receive a red dress pin that you can wear to show your support for the Go Red campaign. Of course, donations in any amount are welcome.

Visit Webster’s Go Red for Women Fundraising Page

Also, check out our National Wear Red Day Fundraising Page where you can make donations online that will go directly to the American Heart Association and will count towards Webster´s fundraising goal.

According to the Go Red for Women website, heart disease is the No. 1 killer of women and is more deadly than all forms of cancer combined. Funds raised by Go Red support educational programs to increase women’s awareness about their risk for heart disease and critical research to discover scientific knowledge about cardiovascular health.
