Burlington Stores is Helping to Knock Out Heart Disease in Women!

 

For the seventh consecutive year, Burlington Stores, the national off price retailer, and WomenHeart, have teamed up to educate women nationwide about the importance of their heart health, as heart disease is the leading cause of death in women. Throughout the month of February, National Heart Month, and March, visit any Burlington store location nationwide and be sure to donate at check out to support WomenHeart to help further our mission.


This year, we were joined by Vanessa Williams, Multi-Platnum Recording Artist, Award Winning Actress, New York Times Best Selling Author, as a part of our #KnockOutHeartDisease Campaign.

 

WomenHeart helps women to learn about warning signs and risks of heart disease, find locations for heart health support groups in communities nationwide and help women connect with others who are heart disease survivors –those that have “walked the walk” when it comes to firsthand experience with heart disease.   

 

Additionally, select Burlington stores across the country are hosting free heart health screening events on February 6 and March 20, since knowing your numbers and understanding risk factors are the first steps in knocking out heart disease in women. Burlington will donate $5, up to $25,000, to WomenHeart for each in-store screening. Find a screening store location near you.

 

Thank you to Amgen for sponsoring the Cholesterol Screenings.
