Keuka College traded in its trademark green and gold for red today (Friday, Feb. 1).
Members of the College community wore red shirts, scarves, dresses, and shoes in support of the 10th Annual American Heart Association’s National Go Red for Women Day.
The American Heart Association created Go Red for Women to dispel myths about women and heart disease and empower women to take charge of their heart health. Heart disease is the No. 1 killer of women causing 1 in 3 deaths each year, or approximately one woman every minute. Since the inception of the Go Red for Women Day, the lives of more than 627,000 women have been saved.
Keuka’s initiative was organized by members of the Staff Advisory Council’s Staff Events Committee, including Paulette Willemsen, secretary for the Division of Education and the Division of Social Work; Vickie Tobias, database administrator; and Justin Krog, program developer.
