Wear Red Day Strut Aims to Give Heart Disease the Boot

Business leaders, executives, employees and community leaders will take to State Street at 5:30 p.m. Friday, Feb. 3, for the American Heart Association’s Wear Red Day Strut. The Wear Red Day Strut will start on upper State Street and end with a celebration at Paseo Nuevo Shops & Restaurants on State Street in downtown Santa Barbara.

The goal of the Wear Red Strut is to raise awareness that heart disease is the No. 1 killer of women, and encourage participants to take preventive measures to reduce their risk.

Festivities will include the opportunity to strut your stuff on a red carpet experience, heart-healthy happy hour and small bites on the terrace at Paseo Nuevo, CPR training, and health and wellness exhibits. The public is encouraged to participate in this free event.

The Wear Day Strut is sponsored locally by Paseo Nuevo Shops & Restaurants and is part of the larger Go Red for Women campaign that takes place nationally in February.

In addition to the Wear Red Day Strut, the American Heart Association will host the Santa Barbara Go Red For Women Luncheon on Friday, Feb. 24, at the Fess Parker’s Doubletree Resort, 633 E. Cabrillo Blvd.  The Santa Barbara Go Red for Women event will begin with a health expo, followed by the luncheon and program.

The annual Go Red For Women campaign harnesses the energy, passion and power of women and those who love them, to band together and collectively wipe out heart disease. On a national level, the Go Red For Women movement has resulted in 650,000 women’s lives being saved over the last 10 years.

Macy’s has been a national sponsor of the Go Red For Women movement since its inception, donating more than $40 million in the fight against women and heart disease.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
