Upstate American Heart Association encourages heart health with Go Red Day


GREENVILLE, S.C. (WSPA) – The Upstate American Heart Association is encouraging all citizens to pay attention to their heart health.

The organization said some ways to focus on heart health are through exercise and avoiding bad habits such as vaping in teens.

Spokesperson Megan Ramsey said the organization is focusing on devoting resources to vaping research and encouraging teens to avoid the practice.

Friday is National Wear Red Day. It’s also a day where business Shred415 in University Ridge in Greenville is offering free classes for first timers. They will also make a donation to AHA when you participate.

Everyone is asked to wear red in support. Those who wish to share their support can use #WeGotThis on social media to be part of the virtual rally.
