The American Heart Association is encouraging people to wear red clothing on Friday during Wear Red Day 2018.

The AHA said wearing red on Feb 2 helps raise awareness about cardiovascular disease in women.

Heart disease and stroke kill 1 out of every 3 women, but the AHA said these deaths are often preventable through awareness, lifestyle changes, and medical supervision.

People who participate in the Upstate are encouraged to post photos of their red outfits using the hashtag #GoRedUpstate.
