(Inter)National Wear Red Day® a Big Success

This February, many companies and individuals across the South Central Affiliate went red in support of heart health for National Wear Red Day®. In Houston, Hines Properties turned many of their major downtown buildings red; in Dallas, the NHL’s Dallas Stars went red during two home games; and in Little Rock, the State Capitol and the Clinton Library went red this year for the first time.

In The Woodlands, Texas, CB&I, a global company that designs, engineers and constructs some of the world’s largest energy infrastructure projects, took their first foray into the Go Red For Women efforts by launching a worldwide effort to celebrate Wear Red Day in each of their 40 offices.

"In conjunction with CB&I's Wellness program, we asked employees in all locations to wear red to mark awareness for heart health and we were overwhelmed by the response — more than 30 office locations and jobsites all over the globe sent in photos,” said Jan Sieving, CB&I’s Vice President of Marketing and Communications. “Groups ranging from four to 400 employees delighted us with their creative photos. Wear Red Day also drew attention to our Wellness website that promotes healthy habits."

Check out the slide show below to catch glimpses of red from offices across the U.S. to Australia, Saudi Arabia, The Philippines, Canada, India, Qatar, South Africa, Venezuela and more!
