On February 5th, businesses, organizations, landmarks all over the country, are going to illuminate red for National Go Red for Women Day. And you can be a part of the event!

Go Red in Central New York

On the behalf of the American Heart Association of CNY, we are asking local organizations and businesses all around Central New York to "Go Red" on Friday, February 5th 2016.

What’s “Go Red” You Ask?

  • A one day national phenomenon in which cities across the country light up red at 4:30pm to bring awareness for women with heart disease.
  • Businesses participate by having their employees dress in red, or light up the outside of their businesses.
  • By lighting up your business with red flood lights, red string lights, or any other creative way, we bring awareness and hope to those women that are suffering.

As a one day national phenomenon, we would like Central New York to make a statement. We are asking you, as a local business leader, to help spread awareness. For if the local business leaders throughout the area participate, we hope that the rest of the Mohawk Valley will follow suit and make “The Red Pledge.”

Townsquare Media and the American Heart Association hope you will participate in our local “Go Red” Day on Friday, February 5th 2016. Please make “The Red Pledge” and help the Mohawk Valley shine red to bring awareness to women’s heart health!
