Heart disease is the No. 1 killer of women in the United States, claiming more lives than all forms of cancer combined. Here at Walker Tracker we support the American Heart Association’s efforts to raise awareness in the fight against heart disease by participating in their Wear Red Day event. Join us on Friday, Feb. 7, 2014 —wear red— it’s everyone’s color.

Wearing red is just one step towards raising awareness; here’s what else you can do:

1. Know Your Heart Score

Know your numbers. Think you are eating right and getting enough exercise? It takes five minutes to make sure. Take the My Life Check and find out where you stand.

2. Live Healthy

Learn new ways to prevent heart disease with heart-healthy recipes and exercises.

3. Know the Signs of a Heart Attack

Learn how to identify a heart attack. Watch “Just a Little Heart Attack” video, starring and directed by Elizabeth Banks. Learn more about the symptoms of a heart attack and stroke here.

4. Start Walking

Get moving and start walking by starting or joining a walking club with friends or coworkers  and keeping track of your progress.
