Milton helps raise awareness

Home Features Milton helps raise awareness

National Wear Red Day was Feb. 5, and many on the Milton campus showed their support by wearing Red proudly either by wearing red shirts or red pins.  National Wear Red Day is a day to raise awareness around the country about heart disease and the many harmful affects it has. 

 In order to raise money for the American Heart Association, members of the AHA Heart Walk Team sold red pins for $5 each. The Milton campus also had mini manicures offered in building 4300 from 9 a.m. to noon to raise money for AHA. 

Red Friday showed people how important it is to raise awareness about heart disease and support the American Heart Association.
