National Wear RED Day, Feb. 5th, 2016

Let's unite to prevent heart disease and stroke...

Our mothers, daughters, sisters, friends, and coworkers are at risk. Heart disease and stroke cause 1 in 3 deaths among women each year - more than all cancers combined. Fortunately, we can change that because 80 percent of cardiac events can be prevented with education and lifestyle changes.

If you would like a shirt please return the form attached with a minimum of a $15 donation. Make checks payable to JRFH. Return to Ms. Roof by January 19th.
