TTD Joins American Heart Association’s “Go Red for Women” Campaign

TTD Lights Tree in Roger Ludlow Triangle Red for the Month of February

Norwalk, CT (February 4, 2016) – The Third Taxing District, (“TTD”), East Norwalk’s Electric Department, announced today its support of the American Heart Association (“AHA”) and the “Go Red for Women” campaign.

The campaign supports women’s heart health and people are asked to wear red to increase awareness that heart disease is the number one cause of deaths in women. TTD commissioners and employees have coordinated an effort to light the tree in Roger Ludlow Triangle red for the month of February to demonstrate their support of this worthwhile issue.

“TTD is proud to support the AHA and American Heart Month in its effort to empower women with information and tools to take positive action to reduce their risks of heart disease and stroke,” said Jim Smith, TTD’s General Manager. “TTD is an integral part of the East Norwalk community and we are pleased to have the opportunity to raise awareness in the fight against heart disease.”

“We are grateful to TTD for supporting our Go Red for Women mission,” said Carolyn Torella, Communications Director, American Heart Association, Hudson Valley and Fairfield County. “Heart disease is an important, but often overlooked, issue in women’s health care and since it is the leading cause of death among women, we all have been impacted by this issue, and we know that much more needs to be done.”
