Westborough – On Feb. 7, for the 11th year in a row, local law firm Mirick O’Connell (offices in Westborough, Worcester and Boston) joined the American Heart Association’s Go Red movement to raise awareness of heart disease, and to raise funds to support education and medical research. For more than 10 years, the American Heart Association has sponsored National Wear Red Day to raise awareness in the fight against heart disease in women.

Mirick O’Connell employees showed commitment to the fight against heart disease by raising funds through a $5 jeans day, purchasing raffle tickets, and wearing the color red. The firm also hosted a “lunch and learn” for its employees to discover ways to be more heart healthy with presentations by cardiac specialists.

In addition, the firm will be participating in the American Heart Association’s annual Heart Walk Saturday, May 3.

Funds raised by the Go Red for Women movement enable the American Heart Association to help women by offering educational programs, increasing women’s understanding about their risk for heart disease and supporting research to discover scientific knowledge about heart health.
