On 29 September, thousands of World Heart Federation members, partners and supporting organizations and individuals joined forces to inspire millions of people worldwide to live heart-healthy lives.
From walkathons and fun runs, to health screenings, creative social media campaigns, media coverage and more … this year’s campaign resonated around the world and played a key role in spreading awareness of cardiovascular disease, including heart disease and stroke, and the simple steps we can all take to reduce our risk.
This year, we also saw more than 40 landmarks, monuments and iconic buildings turn a celebratory red in support of World Heart Day.
Thank you to everyone who supported World Heart Day 2017!
