The American Heart Association's Go Red For Women movement in Sioux Falls is asking all women to help America Go Red this year.
In February of 2004, the American Heart Association launched its Go Red For Women movement. Since that time this event has grown into a big national movement involving people from all walks of life.
Organizers say Go Red For Women educates and connects millions of women of all ages to learn how to make heart-healthy choices every day. Organizers say women need to be aware of heart disease the number 1 killer of women.
Sioux Falls will celebrate Go Red For Women with a Red Dress Dash through Downtown Sioux Falls. Participants will have on red dresses and dash through the streets of Downtown Sioux Falls to Fawick Park, where we will declare February American Heart Month and kick-off the month-long celebration.
The Dash begins at Meso (220 S. Phillips Ave.) on Friday, February 1st, at 5:30 for registration. The dash begins at 6:15. A perk of the race will be discounts and deals for Red Dress Dash participants from participating Downtown Sioux Falls First Friday retailers and restaurants. There will also be a lot of heart health information and resources from Sanford Heart and the Sanford Center for Health and Well-being. The Falls of the Big Sioux River will also be lighted red Friday night in celebration of Wear Red Day and the Red Dress Dash.
