Although a snow storm closed the school during National Wear Red Day on February 5, the wintry weather didn’t stop students and staff at Blackstone Valley Tech and its School Based Health Center from celebrating the heart-healthy event.
Valley Tech’s annual show of support for the American Heart Association’s Go Red for Women movement was rescheduled for Wednesday, February 10, and featured an informational display on heart disease and its remedies, a heart-healthy lunch special for teachers, and a raffle for several handmade Go Red-themed scarves. The annual Go Red for Women festivities are organized by employees of the Milford Regional Medical Center’s School Based Health Center located inside Valley Tech.
