Burlington Stores is Helping to Knock Out Heart Disease in Women!
For the sixth 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 are joined by Kelly Rowland, Grammy Award-winning artist and heart health advocate, to serve as the voice and supporter of their #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, since knowing your numbers and understanding risk factors are the first steps in knocking out heart disease in women. To find a screening store location near you, visit burlingtoncoatfactory/hearthealth. And after you get your heart health screening, be sure to tag at least two friends with #KnockOutHeartDisease and Burlington will donate $5, up to $25,000, to WomenHeart!
