Red Steps Challenge
The American Heart Association is calling on people to take six million "red steps" in recognition of the nearly six million Americans living today with Heart Failure. The "Red Steps Challenge" aims to inspire Americans to take small heart-healthy steps, in their favorite pair of red socks, towards a better life and increase awareness about this disease.
All you have to do to participate is take a photo in your favorite pair of red socks and upload it to social media with hashtags! To see the complete rules, please see the attached document. The challenge will last until May 30!
