Free Wear Red Day events this Friday!

This month is American Heart Month, drawing attention to America’s No. 1 killer of men and women - heart disease - and the strides being taken through research and education to raise awareness of risk factors and to decrease death rates from it. Help us celebrate the month by bringing your friends, family and co-workers to one or more of the following FREE Wear Red Day events occurring in Indianapolis on Wear Red Day, this Friday, Feb. 5.

I know everyone in Indiana will be wearing their Colts blue this Friday. But don't forget, Friday, Feb. 5 is National Wear Red Day! So why not add a splash of red to your blue? A red scarf, red earrings, red nail polish, red heels, a red hat - anything will do! You can love the Colts and your heart at the same time!
