WHAT:

Did you know that one in three women die from heart disease and that it’s the leading cause of death in women? That’s why Burlington Stores, the national off-price retailer, has teamed up with WomenHeart: The National Coalition for Women with Heart Disease for the sixth consecutive year to educate women nationwide about the importance of their heart health.

On Friday, February 3rd, 2017 from 5pm-8pm, customers are invited to a “Night Out to #KnockOutHeartDisease,” at Burlington’s Baltimore location to receive a free heart health screening, inclusive of blood pressure, pulse, BMI and Cholesterol, by certified health professionals. Customers will also be able to receive bi-lingual (English/Spanish) women’s heart health information and tips for living heart healthy. Getting a screening is the first step in knowing the status of your heart health and knocking out heart disease. Those that get their heart health screened can tag at least two friends with #KnockOutHeartDisease to encourage those they love to do the same. For each use of the hashtag, Burlington will donate $5, up to $25,000, to WomenHeart.

From February 1st through March 31st all Burlington store locations are encouraging customers to donate $1 or more at check out to benefit WomenHeart’s mission to educate women about the importance of their heart health and to support those women living with heart disease.
