Clancy Relocation & Logistics is going red! Will you join us?
Our friends over at Stamford Hospital recently sent out a letter inviting us in the community to join the Go Red for Women movement which helps to save lives and raise awareness of heart disease in women.
Yes, we’re participating in Wear Red Day on Friday, February 6th 2015 for the women in all our lives that truly put their hearts into everything they do.
Did you know that more women die from heart disease than from all forms of cancer combined?! Heart disease is the leading cause of death in women in the US and in our region. Too many women die each year because they are unaware of the symptoms. Help us continue to raise awareness to end this killer of women.
It’s easy to join us on National Wear Red Day!

Heart disease has been called the Silent Killer because it often has no noticeable symptoms. It’s more deadly than all forms of cancer combined. And it’s not just “an old man’s disease.”
In 2003, research revealed that heart disease was by far the No. 1 killer of women, and actually killed more women than men. To save lives and raise awareness of this serious issue, the American Heart Association launched Go Red For Women. And the red dress has become the iconic symbol of our battle against heart disease in women.
National Wear Red Day® — the first Friday each February — is our special day to bring attention to this silent killer of women. We encourage everyone to wear red, raise their voices, know their cardiovascular risk and take action to live longer, healthier lives.
Nearly 1 million women have joined the movement and women who Go Red are more likely to make healthy choices.
- 89% made at least one healthy change in their life
- 61% began eating healthier
- 54% started exercising
- 43% checked their cholesterol
- 37% lost weight
Don’t be Silent about the Silent Killer. Help save more lives. Know your risk and get involved!
