Ask Minnesota Legislators to Wear Red on Friday, Feb. 4th!

It's February 1, which marks the start of American Heart Month! There are exciting things happening across Minnesota and our nation this month as we work to raise awareness about America's number one killer - heart disease.
Join us in wearing red this Friday, February 4, for National Wear Red Day.

A recent report from the American Heart Association stated that the cost of treating cardiovascular disease will TRIPLE over the next 20 years unless we are focused on education, prevention and advancing positive public policy changes. That is why it's important that you Tell Your Legislators to Wear Red on Friday, Feb. 4 and work on public policies that will make Minnesota - and our nation - healthier for all of us!

Thank you for your continued support!

Your MN Advocacy Team,
Anne Simaytis, Justin Bell and Rachel Callanan
