PHOTOS: Philly311 Goes Red For Women’s Heart Disease

Image

This past Friday, Philly311 celebrated  National Wear Red Day to help raise awareness for women’s heart disease. National Wear Red Day (now in its 10th year) was created by the American Heart Association’s “Go Red for Women” campaign to help fight the number 1 killer in women.

Philly311 celebrated Wear Red Day with decorations, informational packets about heart disease, and a “Wear Red” contest, won by Kimberly Adams. ( Maineva White placed second.)

Philly311 employees celebrated National Wear Red Day, in part, to support to Chief Customer Service Officer Rosetta Carrington Lue who is a heart disease survivor and a national spokesperson for the Go Red for Women campaign. However, even without a Director/Spokesperson to support, too many Philly311 employees have been affected by heart disease. See below to read:

Heart disease kills too many women. But it can be prevented with education about risks, symptoms, and how to live a healthy lifestyle. The Go Red for Women website is a valuable resource for anyone looking to learn more about about heart disease.

  1. Whats up this is kind of of off topic but I was wanting to know if blogs use WYSIWYG editors or if
    you have to manually code with HTML. I’m starting a blog soon but
    have no coding know-how so I wanted to get guidance from someone with experience.
    Any help would be enormously appreciated!
