Help us to get iconic landmarks to light up in support of our campaign
Iconic buildings, monuments and landmarks illuminate
every year to show support for World Heart Day
Home > Landmarks
Four years ago we started asking buildings and landmarks around the world to light up red to help promote our campaign and raise awareness of the world’s number one killer … cardiovascular disease.
This year, we hope that more illuminations will take place than ever before, joining the likes of Table Mountain in South Africa, Jet d’Eau in Geneva, Sky Tower in New Zealand and the Gate of the Orient in China.
If you can make a building turn red for World Heart Day, or wish to pass on a contact that can, please let us know by emailing email@example.com.
We will let our local World Heart Federation member organization in your country know so that they can support you if necessary. We will also plot the landmark on our Worldwide Activities Map.
We also ask to be sent high quality photographs of the illuminated landmarks as soon as possible after they are lit up so that we can use them to share the power and spread awareness.
