Ascend’s Corporate HQ Goes Red for Women
If you drive by Ascend’s Corporate Headquarters at 520 Airpark Drive in Tullahoma tonight, chances are you’ll see something a little unusual.
Our Corporate Headquarters will be bathed in red lighting to celebrate National Wear Red Day®.
The special day is an awareness project of the American Heart Association’s Go Red for Women® movement. According to goredforwomen.org, heart disease and stroke cause one in three deaths among women each year, which is more than all cancers combined.
“Fortunately, we can change that because 80 percent of cardiac events can be prevented with education and lifestyle changes,” the site states.
Don’t be surprised if you see Ascend employees wearing red today, too. Employees may wear blue jeans and a red shirt with a contribution of at least $5. Donated funds will be matched by the credit union at the end of the day.
