The American Heart Association is encouraging Americans to wear red clothing Friday, Feb. 3rd.

This is the 15th National Wear Red Day.

One in three women die of heart disease and stroke every year, according to goredforwomen.org.

It's also a fund raiser with proceeds benefiting education programs to make women aware of their risks for these conditions as well as research.
