The American Heart Association's Go Red For Women is asking America to go RED in celebration of the 10th National Wear Red Day today, February 1, 2013. For 10 years, women have been fighting heart disease - the No. 1 killer of women - both individually and together as part of the Go Red For Women movement. To date, more than 627,000 women's lives have been saved, but the fight is far from over. Women need the right information, education and care, in order to treat, prevent, and even end heart disease.

Yesterday, January 31, the eve of the 10(th) National Wear Red Day, Go Red For Womenis hosting a lighting ceremony at Macy's Herald Square in New York City - the first iconic building to turn red. Macy's is a founding national sponsor of Go Red For Women and has raised $40 million to support the cause since 2004. Star Jones, the American Heart Association's national volunteer, invited New Yorkers to kick off National Wear Red Day at Macy's with some of Broadway's hottest talents includingJudy Kaye from Nice Work If You Can Get It and performances from Motown's Valisia LeKae andthe cast of STOMP!

BroadwayWorld was there for the festivities and you can check out full coverage below!

To mark ten years of the fight against heart disease in women, the American Heart Association's Go Red For Women is asking Americans to raise awareness about heart disease and Go Red in new and bold ways - turning every landmark, every Main Street, every organization, social media page and home RED to shine a spotlight on the No. 1 killer of women.

Local Go Red For Women events will be held across the country throughout the month of February, featuring screenings of a new "10 Years of Fighting Heart Disease in Women" video, appearances by local celebrities and heart disease survivors. Learn more about local events by visiting GoRedForWomen.org.
