Men and women all over the Jersey Shore are marking their calendars and getting ready for this year's National Wear Red Day.

This year's National Wear Red Day is Friday, February 2nd, 2018 and we hope everyone participates. I know I will be. National Wear Red Day is in support of Go Red For Women, a campaign to remind women of the importance of heart health.

The numbers are truly staggering. In the U.S., cardiovascular disease kills one woman every 80 seconds.Donations for Go Red For Women help support awareness and research into cardiovascular disease in women.

You can learn all about National Wear Red Day and Go Red For Women by visiting their website. While you're there, get details about making donations and other ways that you can help this life saving movement.

If you are a woman or love the ones in your life, than this is a perfect way to show support and promote awareness for this critical medical information.
