During the campaign, the company’s headquarters on North Temple will be bathed in red light, and employees will participate in monthlong activities that includes heart-health education, a health fair and the exploration of healthier lifestyle options.
“This is an extremely important issue that affects all of us,” CEO Cindy Crane said in a statement. “We are encouraging our employees, as well as the community, to get involved in spreading awareness and fighting heart disease.”
The campaign also focuses on funding research, specifically on women’s heart health, and educating women in the community on how they can reduce their risk factors and live healthier lives.
