Nashville Electric Service (NES) has “Gone Red” for the month of February in support of the American Heart Association.
Earlier this month, the NES dome glowed red, joining other Nashville landmarks like Nissan Stadium, the Adventure Science Center pyramid, the Batman Building, Bridgestone Arena, Korean War Veterans Memorial Bridge, the Tennessee State Capitol, Ryman Auditorium, TPAC and others, in lighting up the skyline.
Heart disease is the leading cause of death in Middle Tennessee with over 2,815 deaths each year and continues to be a woman’s greatest health threat. More women die of heart disease than all forms of cancer combined. However, nearly 80 percent of cardiac events are preventable through education and lifestyle choices.
This marks the 17th year businesses around the city have participated in the initiative. Every February, the American Heart Association holds events as part of “American Heart Month.”
Making a commitment to your health isn’t something you have to do alone – grab a friend, coworker, or family member and #GoRed by knowing your personal risk and taking action to reduce the likelihood of heart disease. For more information, click here.
