The day is celebrated annually by wearing red color to represent the fight against heart disease and stroke in an effort to generate awareness and initiate change. By the 13th anniversary of the National Wear Red Day, the campaign had achieved many positive goals including these statistics: more than 33% of women in America have lost weight and more than 50% of American women are more physically active.
