St. Anthony Using Little Hats To Help Raise Heart Health Awareness

The month most associated with love, February, is also National Heart Month, and St. Anthony Regional Hospital has joined forces with the American Heart Association to participate in the Little Hats, Big Hearts campaign. During the month of February, each baby born at St. Anthony’s Birth Place will receive a red knitted or crocheted stocking hat to show commitment to the program that raises awareness of heart disease, the number one killer of Americans, and congenital heart defects which are the most common type of birth defect in the country. Volunteers with Go Red through the American Heart Association have hand-made more than 52,000 hats for 453 hospitals in 40 states. “Together, we are working to raise awareness, provide resources and inspire moms to take their family’s heart health to heart while also raising awareness about congenital heart defects,” said Kassi Wessing, communications director with the American Heart Association.
