Did you know that every minute someone in the United States dies from a heart disease related event? The students and teachers are wearing red on Friday, February 3, 2017 for heart disease awareness. Heart disease is the leading cause for death. Ways that you can have a healthy lifestyle includes being physically active every day, have a good nutrition, aim for a healthy weight, reduce stress, and avoid smoking and drinking. “I think everyone should have a healthy life and not have to deal with heart disease,” said Kaylie Myers, eighth grader. About 1 in 4 deaths is caused by heart disease. Every 42 seconds someone has a heart attack in the US alone. A lifestyle is not only the best defense against heart disease and stroke, it’s also responsibility. Students and teachers please wear anything red to school to show support for Heart disease awareness.
