On Friday, February 7, Faculty and Staff at Fisher Elementary joined millions of Americans and donned RED to support the American Heart Association’s “Go Red for Women” campaign!
Not only was it a day to wear red in support of a great cause, but faculty and staff donated funds to the American Heart Association. “It was the first time I coordinated the program at Fisher,” said Go Red Day Coordinator Tara Raux, “possibly next year it will become bigger and we can include the students.”
The campaign started over 10 years ago to raise awareness of the fight against heart disease in women. Heart Disease is the No. 1 killer of women and is more deadly than all forms of cancer. Stroke is not only the No. 4 cause of death in the United States, it’s also a leading cause of severe, long-term disability.
