Nation Wear Red Day, February 3rd!


Through Go Red for Women, the American Heart Association is working to improve lives by providing women the tools to lead heart healthy lifestyles and funding research to advance the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of cardiovascular diseases. In support, Two Union Square will “Go Red” by lighting the rooftop lights this Thursday and Friday. Our goal is to inspire women to wear red and take action against cardiovascular disease, the leading killer of women, and to use resources from the American Heart Association’s Go Red For Women movement. Be sure to wear your red on Friday, 2/3 and tag @americanheartWA so they can be alerted to share your post.
