Go Red For Women
February 4, 2011, 5:10 PM
SIOUX FALLS, SD - You may have noticed anchors and reporters here at KELOLAND-TV wearing red today. Well, we aren't the only ones and it's for a good reason.
Today the country is going red for women. Wearing a red jacket or even a red pin is a way to speak up against heart disease and a way to empower women to take charge of their heart health.
That's important because Heart Disease is the number one killer of women.
8 million women in the US are currently living with heart disease.
35,000 are under age of 65.
And every year, nearly half a million American women have a heart attack.
So to raise awareness, several businesses around the country and right here in KELOLAND are helping to raise money for the American Heart Association's Go Red For Women campaign.
Believe it or not, you can eat a cupcake today for your health.
A percentage of little red dress cupcakes sold at Oh My Cupcakes in Sioux Falls will help fight heart disease.
“We have a lot of women working here and heart disease is the number one killer on women and so we wanted to support that and just bring awareness to all women, Brianna Magnuson with Oh My Cupcakes said.
And you can still support the campaign. Oh My Cupcakes will be selling the Little Red Dress cupcake until 8 tonight.
