Visit Graceland and Get a "Go Red For Women" Dress Pin Today

February 01, 2013

To help celebrate and support the American Heart Association National Wear Red Day, Graceland is giving away a "Go Red for Women Red" dress pin while supplies last, on Friday, February 1.

The American Heart Association (AHA) launched National Wear Red Day® in 2003 to bring attention to cardiovascular disease, which claimed the lives of nearly 500,000 American women each year. In 2004, the AHA created "Go Red for Women" to educate women on heart disease, help women come together to show their support, and increase funding for heart disease research and treatments for those in need.

Since the first National Wear Red Day® 10 years ago, tremendous strides have been made in the fight against heart disease in women, including:

  • 21% fewer women dying from heart disease
  • 23% more women aware that it’s their No. 1 health threat
  • Publishing of gender-specific results, established differences in symptoms and responses to medications and women-specific guidelines for prevention and treatment
  • Legislation to help end gender disparities
