B's & American Heart Association Host Heart Health Night
/ Boston Bruins
BOSTON, MA – On Tuesday, January 31, the Boston Bruins are teaming up with the American Heart Association (AHA) as Tufts Medical Center presents the Boston Bruins Sixth Annual Heart Health Night during their game against the Ottawa Senators at 7:00 p.m.
Cardiac patients and survivors will be in attendance and will participate in a variety of activities throughout the evening. The activities will include Zamboni rides, a chance to watch warm-ups from the Bruins bench, an opportunity to greet the team as they head out of the locker room to take the ice and an on-ice intermission contest. Bruins fans will also be able to have their blood pressure checked by staff from The CardioVascular Center (CVC) at Tufts Medical Center at the Comcast Zone.
All in-game fundraising activities, as well as proceeds from the 50/50 raffle, will benefit the American Heart Association to help fund cutting-edge research, life-saving public and professional education, and advocate to protect public health. In addition, Boston Bruins coaches, broadcasters and team personnel will be showing their support by wearing a commemorative heart health tie, which represents awareness for all cardiac related diseases.
Through partnering with Tufts Medical Center and the American Heart Association, the Boston Bruins hope to elevate the cause and spread the word about heart disease, especially among women.
The 2011-2012 Boston Bruins season is presented by the Massachusetts State Lottery.
