When I shop for shoes, it’s a workout! Now you too can be shoe happy and heart healthy, without even breaking a sweat! The Second Annual I Heart Shoes Auction is a fundraiser for The Heart And Stroke Foundation’s The Heart Truth Campaign – focused on women and heart disease. Right now, 9 in 10 women have at least one risk factor for heart disease or stroke. Pretty scary, right? Heart disease and stroke is a leading killer of women in Canada. However, through lifestyle changes, women can reduce their risk by as much as 80 per cent. The I heart Shoes Auction, which takes place this Thursday, April 17th at The Delta Winnipeg, will feature a rainbow auction with 130 pairs of shoes ranging in size from 5 to 11! And ladies, there’s no shortage of selection with brands and designers like Valentino, Escada, Coach, Abel Munoz, BCBG, Steve Madden, Skechers and Nike, just to name a few. And be sure to pick up a $25 Shoewag Bag because this year it’s filled with between $100 and $200 in amazing treats just for you. And as if the auction wasn’t enough, there’s also going to be a shoe fashion show hosted by The Bay Downtown, with Olympian Janine Hanson and Paramedic Association of Manitoba volunteers as your lovely models. So my lovelies, if you live in Winnipeg, I urge you to buy your tickets here and support The Heart And Stroke Foundation’s I Heart Shoes Auction. Trust me, your heart and feet will thank you ;)
