DC City Council Goes Red and You Can Too

by Keltcie D. on Wednesday, February 13, 2013

D.C. City Council passed a resolution on February 5th proclaiming February as Heart Month in D.C. and encouraging all residents and agencies to Go Red. We invite you to encourage your office, partners and other networks to participate through-out the month of February by joining our America Goes Red challenge. It’s easy and fun! Here’s how you can help shine a spotlight on heart disease:

Step 1: Plan how your office can involve your employees and constituents in taking action to reduce their risk and raising awareness about heart disease. Have fun and be creative!

Step 2: Capture your event or activity with photos!

Step 3: Post your photos to our website. Upload your best and most creative photos to the categories on the American Heart Association’s Wear Red Day Challenge website at: Be sure to add a caption to let us know what organization or agency your photo is from. Upload your photos between February 1 and February 28. The best entries will be recognized in March.

Let’s get started. Together, we can raise awareness about this country’s No. 1 killer and help reduce heart disease.
