Fighting Against
Heart Disease,

On Saturday, February 18th, 2023 from 11am – 2pm CST, join us in this hybrid space dressed in your red best or red work-out gear and join the fight against heart disease in women — the #1 health threat to Black Women. Get informed, inspired, and empowered to protect your heart, boost your personal fitness, and hear the stories of survivors and others committed to living well at every stage of life.

PREVENTION is our focus, and increased SURVIVORSHIP of those living with a cardiovascular condition.

Join your friends, your family, our community members and the Foundation for Black Women’s Wellness – in-person or virtually** – for our 12th Annual National Wear Red Day celebration! This is a FREE event!

Wear Red Day is a day of awareness and education; a time spent together learning how to identify, live-with, and survive heart disease. As Black women, cardiovascular ailments represent the number one threat to our healthy lives. On February 18th, from 11am - 2:30pm, our community will come together to get more informed, more empowered, and more inspired to refuse to let heart disease make a deep-impact on our lives.  

Register yourself and the other important Black women in your life!  After a 2-year in-person hiatus, reunite with our community of Black women at the Goodman Community Center; remember to come dressed in your red best!  When we come together, we create and sustain a communal sisterhood where Black women and girls can live healthy, happy and thriving lives.
