In honor of February as Heart Awareness Month, the Flyers and Comcast SportsNet have teamed up with the American Heart Association and their Go Red for Women Campaign for the Flyers-Maple Leafs game on Thursday, Feb. 15 at 7 p.m. A portion of the proceeds from tickets sold through the Flyers sales office will be donated to Go Red For Women.
All fans are encouraged to wear red to the game to help create awareness for heart disease, the No. 1 killer of women in America. Fans that wear red may receive a voucher for the chance to win a team-autographed red Flyers practice jersey.
Go Red For Women began in February 2004 to raise awareness that heart disease is women's No. 1 killer. The grassroots campaign has since grown into a vibrant national movement as more women, men, celebrities, healthcare providers and politicians embrace and elevate the cause of women and heart disease.
The campaign provides women tips and information on healthy eating, exercise, and risk factor reduction, such as smoking cessation, weight maintenance, blood pressure control and blood cholesterol management.
