Vionic Supports the Woman’s Day Red Dress Awards February 7th!

We all know that heart health is important. But did you know that heart disease is the leading cause of death for women? That's why Vionic sponsored Woman’s Day Magazine’s Live Longer & Stronger Challenge, a healthy lifestyle initiative with the aim of mitigating the risk of heart disease in women.

Beginning in spring of 2016, Vionic supplied the five participants with supportive footwear throughout the year to help them achieve their diet and fitness goals, giving them the confidence to move freely every day.

This February, Vionic will celebrate the culmination of this campaign alongside the participants and fellow sponsors, including the Mayo Clinic, Lands End and Quaker, among others. The Red Dress Awards will bring together health advocates, media and more in honoring those who have made contributions to the fight against heart disease. Hosted by Jane Lynch, the event will take place at Lincoln Center’s Frederick P. Rose Hall on February 7th.
