Yonkers Mayor Mike Spano and the American Heart Association will gather atYonkers City Hall, Friday, February 1 at 12PM to address the importance and raise awareness of heart health by participating in National Wear Red Day.
The first Friday of February has been designated National Wear Red Day, as part of the GO RED Campaign. On this day, men and women are encouraged to wear red as a symbol of their support of heart health. The Yonkers City Hall Clock Tower will be lit red for the entire weekend, beginning Friday evening, making Yonkers the first municipality to publically support the American Heart Association’s GO RED Campaign in the Westchester County/Hudson Valley Region.
Heart disease is the leading cause of death for both men and women in the United States. 99% of the U.S. adult population has at least one of seven cardiovascular health risks: tobacco use, poor diet, physical inactivity, unhealthy weight, high blood pressure, high cholesterol or high blood glucose.
Lets not forget that Mayor Mike Spano always promotes men’s health awareness on the entire month of November where a group of City Hall workers raise money for the cause.
