A National Wear Red Day for Women has been declared.
This is the third year that the association has urged people, businesses, towns, schools, buildings and landmarks to go red in order to bring attention to this killer.
Last year Graceland, Niagara Falls, the Empire State Building, and the Seattle Space Needle all went red.
All you have to do is wear something red such as a dress, top, tie, hat or ribbon.
Elementary No. 2 will be doing their part to bring attention to heart disease.
They will have their annual American Heart Association Jump Rope for Heart event on March 3 from 6-9 p.m.

The staff will be able to reward students for extraordinary efforts academically and socially in the classroom.
 Possible prizes include: designated dress down day, a free lunch item, or athletic tickets.
Prizes will be awarded throughout the school year for students who reach the required point level.
Heidi Howell, x-ray technologist, who works in the Department of Diagnostic Imaging at Burdette Tomlin Memorial Hospital, was awarded the Service Moment of the Month award for January 2006.    
Heidi had performed an x-ray on an elderly patient who had come to the emergency room on a wet and rainy day with a broken shoulder.
After the patient was treated for her injury she was released to go home.
When Heidi checked on her progress, she told Heidi that she had no one to pick her up and asked if someone could call her a cab.
Her home was a considerable distance from the hospital, so Heidi volunteered to give the woman a ride home.
When asked about why she offered assistance to this woman Heidi replied, “It was not an inconvenience. She was a really sweet woman, and it didn’t make sense to put her in a cab on such a cold and rainy day.
“I wanted to make sure that she reached her home safely.”
Heidi has been employed at Burdette for the past year and a half and received her education from Cumberland County Community College.
She recently married in July and lives in Rio Grande with her new husband, Ty, and her two cats, Bootsie and Chloe.
When not at home enjoying her family, Heidi spends her time working.
