Go Red for Women – February 1 through February 29, 2016

Chandler Museum - Go Red for Women Exhibit DressIn the spirit of Chandler Mayor Jay Tibshraeny’s proclamation that February would be Go Red for Women Month, all City of Chandler Cultural Affairs locations are partnering with the American Heart Association and its Go Red for Women campaign during the month of February to bring awareness to heart disease.

“More than 10,000 Arizona women die of heart disease every year. This affects children, families and the entire health of ourChandler Museum - Go Red for Women Exhibit community,” said Cultural Affairs Director Brenda Brown. 

The Chandler Museum has on display an assortment of red items from its collection, taking a stand for women’s heart health.  The exhibit includes items from the San Marcos Hotel, Arizona’s Sheep Trail, and a bow tie from the 1962 Chandler Jubilee. The red dress from the 1910s on display represents the American Heart Association’s national symbol for bringing awareness to heart disease and its effects on women.
 
To reduce the risk of heart disease, research family history and make healthy lifestyle changes. For more information, visit GoRedForWomen.org
