Join WomenHeart and Burlington on the Heart of Fitness Tour
If you want to reach someone, find her where she spends time. Reaching the more than 42 million women who are living with or at risk for heart disease is WomenHeart's objective.
That's where WomenHeart's partnership with Burlington comes in! Shopping is one of the top ten ways women spend their time. 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 is partnering with Burlington for the fourth year on nationwide heart health education during February, American Heart Month, as well as March.
Presenting the 2015 Heart of Fitness Tour
This year, WomenHeart and Burlington present a new Heart of Fitness Tour, an educational outreach initiative designed to reach women in 10 cities across the U.S. and in Puerto Rico.
In addition to hosting the Heart of Fitness Tour, Burlington will support WomenHeart's mission to empower women to take charge of their heart health by donating $1 for each dress sold in Burlington stores, up to $25,000, in February and March.
Burlington customers are also invited to make a donation to WomenHeart at the cash register in Burlington's 590 retail locations. In thanks for their donation, customers will receive a coupon for 20% off a purchase from 1-800-Flowers.com.
