Nashville is going red on Friday, February 6 to support women’s heart health. As part of the American Heart Association’s Go Red for Women campaign, the NES dome along with other iconic buildings in Nashville will “go red” to raise awareness about the leading killer of women, heart disease.
More women die of heart disease than all forms of cancer combined. In Tennessee, 9,000 women lose their lives each year.
Up to 80 percent of cardiac events are preventable through education and lifestyle choices we make every day. The American Heart Association challenges women to know their personal risk and take action to reduce their likelihood of heart disease.
Along with NES, more than 20 buildings in Middle Tennessee are participating by going red including the Adventure Science Center, AT&T Tower also known as the Batman building, Frist Center for the Visual Arts, Hard Rock Café, LP Field, The Parthenon, Saint Thomas Hospital, Tennessee Performing Arts Center (TPAC), and Tennessee State Capitol.
