WEAR BLUE DAY | FRIDAY BEFORE FATHER’S DAY
Men’s health is the focus of Wear BLUE Day on Friday before Father’s Day. By wearing blue, you are saying you support the men in your life to lead a healthy lifestyle, and you care about their well-being.
As part of the campaign that includes Men’s Health Month and Men’s Health Week in June, Wear BLUE Day encourages us to take stock of our health choices and become more aware of health risks. Men are more likely to skip health checkups than women. At the same time, they are more likely to take chances with their health choices. The three leading causes of death for mean according to the Centers for Disease Control are cancer, heart disease, and accidents.
The Wear BLUE Campaign provides an opportunity for employers, communities, and other organizations to hold events to raise awareness about concerns surrounding men’s health and how they can take charge. The day is also a way for loved ones to show their encouragement for the men in their lives.
HOW TO OBSERVE WEAR BLUE DAY

When it comes to getting healthy or staying there, sometimes a checklist helps. We created a list of 7 Simple Ways to Improve Health that will put you in the mood to wear blue.
