Mid-Michigan Goes Red For Heart Health

Posted: Updated:

LANSING, Mich. (WLNS) - Friday is National Wear Red Day and people across the nation will show their commitment to getting the word out about heart disease.

Right here in mid-Michigan women will not only show their support but they'll be "dashing" for awareness - walking and strutting to the finish line.

Heart disease kills more women than all forms of cancer combined. This event is a way that all Mid-Michiganders can show their support for health awareness. 

The American Heart Association is asking mid-Michigan to be the difference between life and death and make ending heart disease a reality in Lansing.

Go Red for Women is inviting women and men to attend the Red Dress Dash at the Women's Expo on Friday. The public is asked to wear red dresses, but the fun doesn't have to stop there. Red Tutus, sweaters, earrings and socks are all welcome as we walk, strut and dash to the finish line.

There will be prizes for best dres, highest heel and first, second and third place. Winners even get to wear a sash.

The dash will take place Friday at the Lansing Center at noon. The event is free and open to the public.

For more information, visit the American Heart Association's website or their Facebook page: American Heart Association Mid-Michigan Facebook.
