#WearRedDay is on Friday 4th February 2022.
It’s heart month, and the Gibraltar Cardiac Association is once again supporting this very worthy initiative.
To provide a short background, the Association was established approximately 5 years ago with the aim to increase awareness of cardiac issues in Gibraltar, not only for sufferers/patients but also for the public. We are a pressure group, a fundraising group and a support group that would like to increase awareness on the prevention, causes, symptoms and treatments of heart disease. The aftercare made available to cardiac patients in Gibraltar is also of extreme importance to us.
To date, monies collected have been used to aid and enhance the GHA's Lionel Perez Cardiac Rehabilitation Center and for the purchase of more A.E.D/defibrillators, 12 of which have been placed in key areas around Gibraltar. We are also in the process of achieving a long term goal of having a Cath lab facility within the GHA. This will allow patients to have some procedures locally and not have to travel abroad.
To promote #WearRedDay we kindly request your assistance in circulating the below poster and in supporting the event by donating funds, if you wish and wearing red on the 4th February 2022.
We also have the roving heart photo frame available on the day. Should you wish to take part in this photo opportunity in support of our very worthy cause we are contactable via our email: firstname.lastname@example.org or via our Facebook messenger account.
Do not let COVID impact this event. We have no issues in dropping off the frame and waiting outside while photos are taken by yourselves. You can also do smaller group photos rather than one large photo.
We need to remember that heart disease is the leading cause of death and that everyone has a heart. Together we can make a difference. Together we can reduce the risks. Together we can create awareness. Together we can improve the care and quality of life of cardiac patients in Gibraltar.
Let’s paint Gibraltar red to raise and spread awareness in the hopes to help eradicate heart disease and strokes.
