STATE—Friday, Feb. 6 marks the sixth annual National Wear Red Day for Women, a public awareness day urging women (and men), businesses, towns, schools, buildings and landmarks to “go red” or “glow red” and bring attention to the No. 1 and No. 3 leading causes of death for women—heart disease and stroke. 

National Wear Red Day for Women recognizes the 14,000 New Jersey women and the 450,000 women across the country who die each year from cardiovascular diseases. The American Heart Association urges everyone to “go red” on Friday by wearing something red—a red dress, a red tie, a red scarf, a red jacket, or a Go Red For Women “red dress” pin.  On National Wear Red Day for Women, more than 30 New Jersey landmarks—including the official Governor’s residence – Drumthwacket, Merck & Co., The Prudential Center, Panasonic North America, Schering-Plough Corporation, Battleship New Jersey, the Liberty Science Center, the New Jersey Performing Arts Center (NJPAC), and many others—will “glow red.”
