The first Friday in February is National Wear Red Day. The special day was created by the American Heart Association as part of a campaign to raise awareness around the number one killer of women: heart disease and stroke. On this day, millions of people around the country wear red and host events to encourage heart-healthy choices, celebrate the survivors of heart disease, and honor those who have lost their battle.
Morning Pointe of Lenoir City (TN) supported this cause by encouraging residents and associates to wear red and donate to the American Heart Association on February 1. The assisted living community also hosted a “Red Out” Party, where residents, associates, friends, and family shared lots of red goodies while discussing heart disease, the importance of regular heart check-ups, and tips for living a heart-healthy lifestyle.
“I am so proud of our residents and associates for standing in solidarity with the millions of women battling heart disease. This is a cause that is especially important to us, as 75% of our Morning Pointe residents and nearly 90% of our associates are women,” said Greg A. Vital, the President and CEO of Morning Pointe Senior Living.
