NEISD Schools go red for Women

Valentine’s Day on Friday, Feb. 14 wasn’t only filled with the red from roses. North East ISD staff sported red T-shirt’s in support of the “Go Red for Women” Challenge.

Since early December, health services staff have sold Red Dress pins and T-shirts to raise money for the American Heart Association. Their efforts were well worth it, raising more than $10,000!

Health Services thanks everyone who participated in the movement which works toward wiping out silent killers like heart disease and stroke. Red is often referred to as “the color of passion,” and NEISD has made it evident that they are passionate about saving women’s lives by promoting heart health.
