Anchors and reporters across Fox News and the Fox Business Network wore red for National Wear Red Day on Friday.

National Wear Red Day is a part of the American Heart Association's effort to raise awareness for heart disease in women.

Cardiovascular disease and stroke are the cause of death for one out of every three women killed each year, and approximately one woman dies every 80 seconds due to heart-related issues, according to the American Heart Association.

President Donald Trump signed a proclamation on Thursday that February is American Heart Month.

Now, therefore, I, Donald J. Trump, President of the United States of America, do hereby proclaim February 2017 as American Heart Month, and I invite all Americans to participate in National Wear Red Day on February 3, 2017.  I also invite the Governors of the States, the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico, officials of other areas subject to the jurisdiction of the United States, and the American people to join me in recognizing and reaffirming our commitment to fighting cardiovascular disease.

The male anchors of Fox joined in on the awareness campaign by sporting red ties.

 

White House spokesman Sean Spicer and President Trump were both spotted wearing red ties.
