A number of Christian entertainers served as models during New York Fashion Week at the American Heart Association’s Go Red for Women Red Dress Collection 2018 Thursday.
The Macy’s-sponsored event brought Grammy Award-winning gospel singer CeCe Winans, “The Real” co-host Adrienne Bailon Houghton, model and designer Kathy Ireland, actresses Kate Walsh, Lynn Whitfield and Melissa Joan Hart out as celebrity walkers.
While these women have previously gone on record to speak about their Christian faith, they spoke up about their personal reasons for wanting to raise heart health awareness by participating in the event.
“The event reminds women of the need to protect their heart health, inspiring them to make a change because cardiovascular diseases claim the lives of about one woman every 80 seconds, unnecessarily. The good news is that 80 percent of cardiovascular diseases, including stroke, may be preventable with education and lifestyle changes,” a statement on the Red Dress Collection website reads. “Know your numbers” and inspire friends and loved ones to lead healthy lives.”
