MADISON COUNTY, Tenn. — In support of National Wear Red Day, students and staff at Rose Hill Middle School on Friday took a step toward heart health. Actually they take a lot of steps, as they took part in a mini-walk around the school. Heart disease is the No. 1 killer among women in America. By walking Friday, the school is hoping to shed light on the disease and encourage students to stay active. “All of this kind of brings together and melts into their minds the importance of their health to prevent them from following in the footsteps of some of their predecessors in their families,” said Rose Hill Middle School teacher Paula Pickens. About 400 students attended the walk, which they are hoping to make an annual event.
