National Wear Red Day

Kick off American Heart Month by wearing red and joining us in the fight against heart disease!


In the battle against heart disease and stroke, the leading causes of death in America, Commonwealth Credit Union is all about taking action. Through our unwavering support for the American Heart Association as a top fundraiser for the Central Kentucky Heart Walk, we are at the forefront of the fight for cardiovascular health. As we enter American Heart Month, we put that commitment on display by actively participating in National Wear Red Day, a powerful initiative that aims to raise awareness and eradicate heart disease and stroke, particularly in women.

The Power of Red

On the first Friday in February, individuals from all walks of life come together, donning the vibrant color red to raise awareness about heart health. It's a symbol of unity, a collective effort to eradicate heart disease and stroke in millions of women. We recognize the significance of this movement and actively participate in spreading the message of hope.

A Dedicated Partner

Although Wear Red Day is a great way to kick off the month, our commitment to heart health goes beyond just wearing red. As a steadfast supporter of the American Heart Association, we have consistently been a top fundraiser for the Central KY Heart Walk. Through dedicated efforts, we contribute to a cause that has a profound impact on cardiovascular health in the Bluegrass region.

Funds for a Healthier Future

The funds raised by our organization, and others that support the same cause, play a crucial role in supporting research, providing education, and advocating for policies that improve cardiovascular health. These efforts are not just about raising money; they are about saving and improving lives in the communities we serve. Every dollar contributes to the advancement of medical research, educational programs, and initiatives that promote heart-healthy living.

Spreading Awareness

Through blog posts such as this, social media, and various communication channels, we have the power to spread the message of heart health awareness. By leveraging our platforms, we aim to educate and empower individuals to make informed choices that prioritize cardiovascular well-being. It's not just about one day of wearing red; it's about cultivating a culture of heart-conscious living throughout the year. You can join us in spreading heart health awareness by connecting with us on Facebook, Instagram, or X

In the sea of red on National Wear Red Day, we stand together as a beacon of support for heart health. Our ongoing efforts, from fundraising to community engagement, exemplify a commitment to making a positive impact on cardiovascular health in the Bluegrass. As we celebrate American Heart Month, let us join together in the shared mission of eradicating heart disease and stroke, one heart at a time. 

Wear red, share hope, create a healthier future together.
