Tell Your Legislator to Go Red Friday, February 5th!

Too many women die each year because they are unaware that heart disease is their No. 1 killer. I invite you to join me and thousands across the state to bring awareness to women's heart disease by wearing red on National Wear Red Day on Friday February 5th.

Follow the link below to tell your legislators to wear red too and ask for their support of heart healthy policies in 2010:

Tell Your Legislator to Wear Red on Friday, February 5th!

Tell your legislator to support Heart Healthy Policies in Minnesota, such as, preserving the Freedom to Breathe Act, increasing the price of tobacco to discourage our youth from ever picking up the habit, encouraging physical activity by making it safer and easier to walk or bike in our communities, and by promoting physical education in our schools to teach kids the skills for a lifetime of physical activity.

Tell Your Legislator to Wear Red on Friday, February 5th!

Thank you for taking action and creating awareness for heart disease in Minnesota. And one more thing---don't forget to wear red on Feb. 5th!
