Graceland Celebrates National Wear Red Day

On Friday, February 1, 2008, the American Heart Association celebrated the fifth anniversary of the Go Red For Women movement, a nationwide initiative that celebrates the energy, passion and power women have to band together and wipe out the No. 1 killer of women, heart disease, by wearing red. In 1997, only seven percent of women believed that heart disease was the greatest threat to women’s health. Since the inception of Go Red For Women, that number has nearly tripled. Yet, in spite of our efforts, only one in five women (21 percent) believe that heart disease is the leading cause of death among women. Local landmarks and buildings in Memphis supporting Wear Red Day include Graceland which will be illuminated red Jan. 31 – Feb. 14 as well as the fountains of CB Richard Ellis buildings at Corporate Plaza and Thousand Oaks Business. Nine Methodist Le Bonheur locations will also be participating.
