Sky Tower pulses for World Heart Day

The Sky Tower will be the first global landmark to light up for World Heart Day, the awareness day of the Heart Foundation.

For tonight only, the top section of the Sky Tower will light in red and pulse to mimic a heartbeat, acknowledging the 6,000 lives lost each year to heart disease in New Zealand.

Other famous landmarks and cities around the world including Shanghai, Geneva and Cape Town will also light, united in raising awareness of cardiovascular disease, the number one cause of death worldwide. 

The Sky Tower is the southern hemisphere’s tallest man-made structure based in the heart of Auckland, and is one of New Zealand’s most recognisable landmarks.

SKYCITY lights the Sky Tower for charities or community initiatives that we support financially, to mark national holidays, milestones or other celebrations or events, or as a symbol of respect or solidarity.

The lighting of the Sky Tower is best viewed, photographed or filmed 30minutes after sunset.
