STOMP, the international sensation and long running New York stage hit, will join with The American Heart Association's Go Red For Women this week to ask America to go RED in celebration of the 10th National Wear Red Day on February 1, 2013. Women have been fighting heart disease - the No. 1 killer of women - both individually and together as part of the Go Red For Women movement for 10 years. To date, more than 627,000 women's lives have been saved, but the fight is far from over. Women need the right information, education and care, in order to treat, prevent, and even end heart disease.
Tomorrow, Thursday, January 31, the eve of the 10th National Wear Red Day, Go Red For Women is hosting a lighting ceremony at Macy's Herald Square in New York City - the first iconic building to turn red. Macy's is a founding national sponsor of Go Red For Women and has raised $40 million to support the cause since 2004. Stomp will wear red and perform in front of Macy's along with Broadway's Judy Kaye from Nice Work If You Can Get It, Motown's Valisia LeKae, and Star Jones, the American Heart Association's national volunteer, as she invites New Yorkers to kick off National Wear Red Day.
The next day, Friday February 1, Stomp will be wearing red again at their performance on Fox News Channel's "Fox & Friends" at approximately 8:50 AM performing one of their iconic routines.
