A powerful visual symbol of our fight against premature mortality caused by cardiovascular disease

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, more illuminations took place than ever before, from the Jet d’Eau in Switzerland and Sky Tower in New Zealand, to Niagara Falls in Canada and the Pyramids in Egypt.

Did you help turn a landmark red?
