"We are thankful to Herbalife for their support in advancing this movement that has already made a difference in the health of women in communities across the country."

National Wear Red Day® occurs the first Friday of each February and consumers are encouraged to wear red, raise their voices, know their cardiovascular risk and take action to live longer, healthier lives.

The Go Red For Women® movement started more than 10 years ago when the American Heart Association learned that more women were dying from heart disease than men. The American Heart Association is the nation's oldest and largest voluntary health organization dedicated to fighting heart disease and stroke.
