American Heart Association's 2021 Go Red For Women

Blog Post

The 2020 BMD Season of Giving was a charitable way to promote organizations that help others. Continuing community involvement in 2021, we will be looking to the American Heart Association's "Go Red for Women" (GRFW) campaign.

Healthcare and Hospital Law Member and Vice President Amanda Waesch is the Chair of GRFW for the American Heart Association, which is kicking off the 28 days of Heart Health. Show your support on February 5th with “Wear Red and Give” Day.

Consider hosting a Jeans Day every Friday in the month of February at your place of business in support of Go Red For Women, even encouraging remote employees to participate. Snap a pic of your team members in their red gear and post on social media (socially-distanced in person or a virtual group photo will work, too!) – see the toolkit here for sharing on your favorite social platforms.
