Red is the color of the day at Bank of Zachary as we joined the millions of Americans in a nationwide effort in saving women from heart disease, their No. 1 killer. This will be the 10th National Wear Red Day since the American Heart Association (AHA) launched Go Red For Women® in 2004 to dispel myths and raise awareness about heart disease, which today claims about one life per minute.
Employees showed up in red on Friday, and they decorated our front door with a cheery, cherry-red valentine heart.
Thanks to Go Red, 330 less women are dying from heart disease every day. But still it remains to be the biggest threat to a woman’s health and only about half of women are aware of this. We hope that Wear Red Day will send a lifesaving message to women.
