WATCH: USF President Judy Genshaft joins Red Sofa Tour
The American Heart Association's Tampa Bay Red Sofa Tour stopped by the University of South Florida to encourage people to take a seat and talk about heart disease.
The campaign is an effort to bring awareness to cardiovascular diseases and stroke. Ashley Furniture Home Store is a sponsor of the campaign and they donated a custom-made red sofa, which will tour around the Tampa Bay area until Oct. 3.
USF students and faculty were encouraged to sit on the sofa, snap a selfie and share it on social media.
Ashley Furniture Industries Founder Ron Wanek and USF President Judy Genshaft sat on the sofa and talked about the importance of being healthy.
