Beginning February 3, 2017, cities around the U.S. and around the world will Go Red! in support of the American Heart Association‘s fight against heart disease by participating in Go Red for Women, a nationwide movement to help wipe out the number one killer of men and women.

Atlantic Station will be joining forces with Hines to take the Go Red! campaign to the next level. Throughout the month of February, Central Park will be illuminated red. Plus, to support heart health and a healthier lifestyle, make sure to swing by Concierge for a complimentary red apple! If you’re wearing red, you’ll also get a commemorative Atlantic Station heart stress reliever and a Red Dress Campaign pin!

Join in the fun by promoting the Go Red! campaign at your office or school by motivating your peers to wear red on Friday, February 3! And, help us take the initiative global by posting your team pics on social media using the hashtags #GoRedWearRed and #Atlantic Station!
