All submitted photos will be displayed at the event on February 5th and attendees will vote on the picture that they feel best represents heart disease prevention. In addition to the physical display, all of the pictures will also be featured online on the Go Red Planning Committee Organizationâ€™s websites and Facebook pages. Both individual and group photographs are wanted and the contestant who submits the winning entry will receive a free FitBit.
