I bet you would never think that Coca-Cola would be such a huge advocate for wellness, but they have been for quite sometime! To bring heart health into the spotlight during February, American Heart Month, Diet Coke and Heidi Klum have joined forces to promote healthier lifestyle choices for women through an array of events and programs.
On Wednesday, February 9, 2011 @ 7 p.m., The Heart Truth will open Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week with its annual Red Dress Collection Fashion Show. As the runway lights shine on the generous participation of celebrities and designers, we will showcase the power of the Red Dress in encouraging women to protect their heart health. The Heart Truth’s Red Dress Collection 2011 is presented by Diet Coke with national sponsor Swarovski and partners Bobbi Brown Cosmetics and AOL Inc… (NHLBI)
