Mayor Bob Scott has declared Friday will be "Wear Red Day", encouraging locals to wear red apparel to promote awareness of heart health.

The Senate formally adopted a resolution that proclaims February 2018 as American Heart Month and February 2nd 2018 as "Go Red for Women Day". Instead, there's something else we want you to think about too - heart disease and the fact that it kills nearly one in three women each year.

Wear Red Day is part of the American Heart Association's "Go Red for Women" campaign, which advocates for heart-healthy lifestyle choices and heart health awareness.

Heart disease causes 1 in 3 deaths. The $15 event begins at 7 a.m. and will offer the following screenings: cholesterol, glucose (blood sugar), blood pressure, heart risk assessment, EKG (based on individual risk), height, weight, BMI, and body fat calculations.

More than 900,000 women have joined the fight against heart disease - and you can too.

The easiest way to participate is by simply wearing red.

No, there isn't a UofL game today, but you may still see a lot of people dressed in red. Every Macy's customer will get a second pin for free to give to a friend or family member when they buy one this year.
