Celebrate American Heart Month with The Heart Truth

heart truth logo Last Friday was National Wear Red Day where millions of people wore red to help spread the critical message that "Heart Disease Doesn't Care What You Wear–It's the #1 Killer of Women." Even if you forgot to wear red, there’s still many ways to get the word out about The Heart Truth. Here’s how:

Red Dress Collection 2009

On February 13, 2009, The Heart Truth will bring the Red Dress to life once again on the runway at New York Fashion Week with the debut of the Red Dress Collection 2009. This spectacular event reminds women of the need to protect their heart health and inspires them to take action. For the first time ever, a selection of the designer dresses seen on the runway will be auctioned online in February through a partnership with Clothes Off Our Back.
