Where can I get red lights? Ace Hardware, located at 209 NH-101 in Bedford (Harvest Market Plaza), has graciously donated red lights of all kinds. Visit Ace to get yours FREE, while supplies last!

Where can I get ribbons? Primary Bank, located at 207 NH-101 in Bedford (Harvest Market Plaza) and Cohen Closing and Title, located at 203 Meetinghouse Road in Bedford. Stop by either of these businesses and get yours FREE, while supplies last!

Once you have your red lights and/or red ribbons displayed, take a video or photo of you “going RED and being BOLD”, send it to and we will post it on our social media!
