American Heart Association| American Stroke Association Participate in Annual 31 Nights of Light
Earlier this week, The Shops at Prudential Center and Prudential Tower once again began shining bright with the help of local community organizations. Tonight, we’ll get to flip the switch to light up Boston as part of the annual 31 Nights of Light program. The top of the Prudential Tower will beam red in support of the Go Red for Women movement!
Go Red For Women is the American Heart Association’s national movement to end heart disease and stroke in women because it’s not just a man’s disease. In fact, more women than men die every year from heart disease and stroke. The good news is that 80 percent of cardiac events can be prevented with education and lifestyle changes. Go Red For Women advocates for more research and swifter action for women’s heart health. The American Heart Association’s Go Red For Women movement is nationally sponsored by Macy’s and locally sponsored by Santander Bank. To join the Go Red For Women campaign please visit GoRedForWomen.org.
The 31 Nights of Light program was introduced in 2009 to celebrate local Boston-area organizations and draw attention to the great work they do in Boston and beyond. Utilizing a state-of-the-art LED lighting system, the 51st floor of the Prudential Tower will change color daily to honor its 29 community partners.
Our mission is to be a relentless force for a world of longer, healthier lives. For nearly 100 years, we’ve been fighting heart disease and stroke, striving to save and improve lives. Heart disease is the No. 1 killer worldwide, and stroke ranks second globally. Even when those conditions don’t result in death, they cause disability and diminish quality of life. We want to see a world free of cardiovascular diseases and stroke.
