What’s Happening February? February is “Heart Health” Month
While every adult should be checked for heart health, women in particular need to focus on this issue. Burlington stores and WomenHeart have partnered together in support of this initiative. The Heart of Fitness Tour hits 10 National Locations. Join us! Stop by say hello I’ll be at 5 of the 10 locations. Se habla Español y Material en Español.
Reaching the more than 43 million women who are living with or at risk for heart disease is WomenHeart’s objective. Meet and Greet your very own National WomenHeart Champions.
There are over 600 of us. We are women with heart disease who have been trained to share our stories and important messages about heart health to empower women to take charge of our heart health.
Why at a Shopping Center? Shopping is one of the top ten ways women spend their time.
That’s where WomenHeart’s partnership with Burlington comes in! What better way to share potentially lifesaving heart health information with the most women possible than when they are shopping? This has been a formula for success for WomenHeart, who has partnered with Burlington stores for the past four years on nationwide educational outreach activities during February, American Heart Month, as well as the month of March.
