Morgan Drexen raises funds and awareness for the American Heart Association
Morgan Drexen employees build a heart in support of the National Wear Red Day Challenge.
Morgan Drexen was thrilled to join The American Heart Association (AHA) and their fight against heart disease by supporting Go Red for Women and their National Wear Red Day Challenge.
On January 27, 2012 Morgan Drexen employees wanted to be ahead of the game and rallied in red one week prior to the official National Wear Red Day on February 3.
In order to raise funds for AHA, employees participated in a dress down day that allowed employees to pay $5 to dress in casual wear including something red in an ordinarily corporate environment. They also engaged in a friendly office competition to see who could be the most spirited in red.
Statistics continue to show that heart disease is the No. 1 killer of women. While one in 31 American women die from breast cancer each year, 1 in 3 dies of cardiovascular disease. Donations to Go Red for Women support the efforts to educate the public on the signs of bad heart health in addition to funding breakthrough research.
