National Go Red Day hits the airwaves

ALBANY, N.Y. (NEWS10) – If you see a lot of folks wearing red Friday, here’s why: It’s ‘National Go Red Day!’

The American Heart Association is working to raise awareness of the toll heart disease takes on women. They’re asking everyone to wear red and donate to help fund research on Friday.

The group says heart disease and strokes kill a woman every 80 seconds, but the vast majority of these events are preventable.

To participate, all you have to do is wear the color and use the hashtag #GoRed518.
