Published DateTILTON — The Tanger Outlet tower will transform this February as it illuminates red to raise awareness about women's No. 1 killer, heart disease.
"Tanger Outlets is proud to support the American Heart Association by going Red," said General Manager Eric Proulx. "One of Tanger's commitments to the community is to help raise money to fund research for women's health causes."
Almost 420,000 women die annually from cardiovascular diseases. That's more female lives taken than from the next four causes of death combined, including all cancers. Women can find important health tips at www.goredforwomen.org including online tools and health assessments such as "My Life Check."
"We're really honored that the Tanger Outlets in Tilton is lighting their tower red," said Cheryll Andrews, corporate events director at the American Heart Association. "Their support of the American Heart Association is literally shining a light on the need for women to take steps to prevent heart disease."
Participants can GO RED during American Heart Month in February by wearing a red dress, scarf, jacket, shirt, tie, hat or other item in support of all women who have been touched by heart disease or stroke. Photos from all across the Granite State are being shared on: facebook.com/AmericanHeartNH
