The American Heart Association has invited several national and local iconic landmarks to turn their facades red on Friday, February 2 in support of National Wear Red Day.
This day serves to raise awareness of heart disease.
For the fifth straight year, and beginning around 6:00 p.m., Baylor University’s Pat Neff Hall tower will be illuminated in red light, joining other local landmarks such as Baylor Scott & White – Hillcrest, the Dr. Pepper Museum, I-35 bridges, the McLennan County Courthouse, Providence Healthcare Network and MarathonNorco Aerospace.
Nationally, well-known U.S. landmarks such as Niagara Falls, the Empire State Building, the Sears Tower, the Space Needle in Seattle, Times Square, and many more also have gone red in the past in support of this effort.
National Wear Red Day is an important part of the American Heart Association’s Go Red For Women campaign to build awareness of heart disease in women, urge women to take concrete actions to reduce their risk and raise much-needed funds for women-centric cardiovascular research and education.
