Shine for WHD

Every year, we ask monuments around the world to light up red on 29 September to raise awareness of
cardiovascular disease, the world’s number one killer.

Several iconic landmarks across the globe have joined our efforts in previous campaigns: from the Kuala Lumpur Tower in Malaysia and the Sky Tower in New Zealand, to the Niagara Falls in Canada and the Pyramids in Egypt. In 2021, we are connecting the world by reaching out to these iconic monuments one more time and encouraging them to shine a light for heart health.
