Wear Red for Women proclaimed by mayor

January 28, 2008

Albany --  It's the number one killer of women in America, but you can do something about heart disease.

February 1st is Wear Red for Women day. The American Heart Association is asking that you not only wear red on Friday, but that you also make a donation to help support ongoing research about women and heart disease.

Monday, Albany Mayor Willie Adams declared Friday Wear Red for Women Day in Albany.

Payton Wingate of the American Heart Association said, "And it doesn't just stop with women. Every man out there has a woman very close to him that's a candidate for heart disease. They need to reach out this week, talk to the women in their lives and tell them, this is important. Know your risks."

Mayor Adams said, "Let's do what we need to do to keep our ladies living longer."
