National Wear Red Day

Feb. 7 2020

Today is National Wear Red Day. Each year, the first Friday in February is designated as a day to wear red and raise awareness that heart disease is the #1 killer of men and women. More people die from heart disease than many forms of cancer combined. In South Carolina, one out of every three deaths is directly related to cardiovascular disease.

Today, Lexington Medical Center employees wearing red gathered in the atrium of the hospital to take this photo.
