Go Red for Women

Join Webster community members and Webster Wellness in the American Heart Association’s Go Red campaign Feb. 6.

Updated Feb. 9, 2015:

Thanks to the 133 faculty and staff who contributed $1,111 to the Go Red Campaign sponsored by Webster Wellness and student group Delta Phi Epsilon. These contributions will go to the American Heart Association to support educational programs to increase women’s awareness about their risk for heart disease and stroke as well as support critical research to discover scientific knowledge about cardiovascular health.

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 $1,915 in honor of Webster’s centennial 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.” Between 11 a.m.-1 p.m. on Friday, Feb. 6, visit the tables located in the University Center (sponsored by student organization Delta Phi Epsilon) and near Marletto’s, to get additional information.

Friday, Feb. 6, 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!
