Melville Marriott Goes Red to Support the American Heart Association

Staff and Associates of Long Island, New York Hotel Participate in AHA's National Wear Red Day®

MELVILLE, NY--(Marketwired - Mar 17, 2014) - At any Marriott, red is a familiar color -- considering it's featured in the corporate logo. However, on February 7, 2014, the color took on a whole new meaning for the staff and associates of the Melville Marriott Long Island. Joining millions around the country, the team at this hotel in Melville supported Go Red For Women and participated in the American Heart Association's National Wear Red Day®.

For more than 10 years, the American Heart Association has sponsored National Wear Red Day® to raise awareness in the fight against heart disease in women. Held on the first Friday in February every year, National Wear Red Day aims to raise awareness about heart disease being the No. 1 killer of women. On February 7, the hotel staff and associates each wore something red to show support for women with heart disease.

Since 2003, the awareness efforts of the American Heart Association and Go Red for Women have resulted in tremendous strides, including 21 percent fewer women dying from heart disease, and 23 percent more women aware that it's their No. 1 health threat.
