Hamilton ‘Goes Red’ for Women’s Heart Health

There was a lot of red around the Hamilton Township Municipal Building today.

That’s because Hamilton employees were once again helping to promote awareness for Women’s Heart Health.

In addition, the Township Municipal Building and Health Division Building will be lit in the color red, beginning this evening, as a way to spread the important message across the community.

In 2004, the American Heart Association started the ‘Go Red’ initiative as a way to raise awareness of heart disease and stroke as one of the leading cause of death among U.S. women.  Since then, the effort has extended beyond the United States into more than 50 countries.

According to the American Heart Association, nearly 80 percent of cardiac events can be prevented, although cardiovascular diseases continue to be women’s greatest health threat.

“It is so important for us all to help raise awareness about cardiovascular disease, particularly for women,” says Hamilton Mayor Kelly Yaede.  “Each year, our employees wear red to help promote awareness; and we hope that it will continue to encourage and remind our family, neighbors and loved ones to learn more about the symptoms and regularly visit their medical physicians.”
