Burlington #heartoffitness

I love to shop, but certainly not at full price!  I know how to get a great deal and love to make a dollar stretch to get the most value.  That is one thing I love about shopping at Burlington*.  If you haven’t been, you’ve got to check it out.  When you walk in the doors of Burlington, you are surrounded with high quality designer clothing, shoes, housewares, and more–all at a fraction of the original retail cost!

This month is a great month to treat yourself to a gorgeous red dress that won’t break the bank.So many selections are available and while you are shopping, you can help out a great cause.This month Burlington has teamed up with WomenHeart The National Coalition for Women with Heart Disease  and The Heart Truth to create the Red Dress Event.  For every dress purchased, Burlington will donate $1  to benefit Women Heart.  This organization helps to educate and support women living with heart disease.  Burlington Stores and WomenHeart: The National Coalition for Women with Heart Disease are proud to partner for the 4th consecutive year in support of women’s heart health, as heart disease is the leading cause of death in women. During the past three years, Burlington and its generous customers have raised more than $3.4 million to support WomenHeart and its free education and support services for women living with heart disease in communities throughout the country. It also enabled the organization to continue to support and educate Hispanic women – a high risk population for heart disease – through its Para la Mujer Hispana initiative.

Red dress event

From February 1 through March 31, 2015, Burlington customers can support the cause by donating $1 or more at check-out to benefit WomenHeart to further their mission to educate women about the importance of heart health and support women living with this chronic and life-threatening disease. As a thank you for donating, customers will receive 20% off the merchandise value of their purchase at http://www.1-800Flowers.com. Burlington will also donate $1, up to $25,000, to WomenHeart for every dress sold during that timeframe.

The Heart of Fitness Tour

Taking place at select Burlington locations this February, American Heart Month, the tour will inform women coast to coast about the importance of their heart health.

Customers are invited to participate in the Heart of Fitness Tour at select Burlington locations , which will consist of a complimentary fitness class led by fitness instructors, including a light stretch and brisk walk around the store. On average, every minute you walk extends your life by one and a half to two minutes. The events will also offer free heart health screenings (blood pressure measurement, waist circumference, and a risk factor questionnaire) from heart health professionals. Bilingual educational materials will be distributed by WomenHeart Champions, heart disease survivors who are volunteer community educators and advocates for women’s heart health.

I think this is something so important to educate ourselves on.  I know as moms, we are always thinking of everyone else in our family and their well-being.  I know thinking about my heart health isn’t top on my list, and it looks like I need to change some priorities around!  So let’s get moving to keep our hearts healthy for ourselves, and for our families, and do our part to share this information with other women by shopping at Burlington and by word of mouth!
