Wear Red to Join The Fight

February 4, 2011

SIOUX FALLS, S.D. - Heart disease is the number one killer of South Dakotans. To call attention to that, and to efforts to fight it, the American Heart Association of South Dakota is asking people to wear red today to show their support.

Heart Association representative Addie Graham-Kramer says it's easy to take part in Wear Red Day.

"We ask that people across the country help spread the awareness about heart disease being the number one killer of women - and in South Dakota, in particular, that it is our number one killer. It's as easy as putting on a red tie, a red shirt, any red accessory, just to show your support for creating that awareness."

Graham-Kramer says a number of events across the state will be held to mark February as American Heart Month. One participant may even get to help spread the word nationally, she adds.

"There's a casting call where women can possibly be one of our Go Red national spokeswomen across the country by telling their story about how they've changed their life and become more heart-healthy, or if they are a survivor, about what they have done since surviving that particular heart episode."
