On Friday, February 6, the Kent Place School community wore the color red in honor of the American Heart Association’s Go Red for Women National Wear Red Day®. The Day, in its twelfth year, was created to raise awareness about heart disease and stroke, the No. 1 and No. 5 killers of women. According to the American Heart Association, one in three women die of heart disease and stroke every year.
Kent Place’s Wellness Committee encouraged the entire school community to wear red to show their commitment to reducing risk, improving health and saving women’s lives.
