Inmates Make Toboggans For National Wear Red Day

CLIFTON, TN- Inmates from a small town in Tennessee, provided over 40 toboggans for new born babies to wear on National Wear Red Day last week.
Last Friday, February 2, was National Wear Red Day. National Wear Red Day is intended to help raise awareness of heart disease, in particular among women. Heart disease is often generally associated with men, but cardiovascular disease is the number one killer of women.

Women (and men) across America color-coordinated for National Wear Red Day 2018, which aimed to dispel myths surrounding heart diseases.

Inmates from the South Central Correctional facility in Clifton, TN, pitched in to do their part for the cause.  The SCCF annex crochet class participated by making 42 toboggans for the Little Hats Big Hearts foundation.

The Little Hats Big Harts joined the American Heart Association in Nashville, in connection with The Children's Heart Foundation, to celebrate American Heart Month by knitting and crocheting red hats for babies born in February at 13 participating hospitals. Little Hats, Big Hearts, honors babies, moms, and heart healthy lives in a very special way.

Supporters  knitted and crotched red hats to be given out to thousands of babies during American Heart Month in order to empower moms to live heart healthy lives and to help their children do the same.
