It’s the season of love, and love is most definitely in the air at Cameron Village.
You love shopping. You’re a first-rate fashionista, a diva of decorating. You love the thrill of finding the perfect thing to wear for that big event, the excitement of grabbing the last pair of earrings to perfectly complement your outfit. You love the time with girlfriends, meandering through your favorite boutiques. You love the mother-daughter bonding (though your taste and hers aren’t always alike!). You love the ooh-ing and ahh-ing over the latest styles. Shopping isn’t just a hobby you love – it’s a passion.
We call it retail therapy, but did you ever consider a trip around Cameron Village could be therapy for your physical heart, too? Our Love Your Heart partnership with WakeMed is helping turn your love of shopping into some serious self-care. Did you know that heart disease is the #1 killer of women? And did you know that YOU can reduce your risk of heart disease with simple changes – including walking around your favorite shops?!
Walking is one of the easiest ways to improve your heart health. Those who know recommend aiming for 10,000 steps each day, and we’ve mapped out how you can get those right in the Village! From Noodles to Richey & Co. Shoes? It’s an easy stroll that will earn you 260 steps. Or start at Uniquities and head all the way around the block for a kickin’ 800 steps! And that doesn’t even count the steps you take inside your favorite shops, wandering up the aisles and down the display racks. Keep moving!
And while you’re getting those steps in and stocking up on Valentine’s Day gifts for those you love, you can earn a special treat for yourself, too! Just spend $250 and take your receipts to one of our partner stores. You’ll be treated to an interlocking heart necklace or bracelet from Bailey’s Fine Jewelry, a travel poncho from lori + lulu, or colorful acrylic wine glasses Palm Avenue. Plus you’ll get a certificate for heart screenings at WakeMed. You can check your total & HDL cholesterol levels and get a blood pressure screening at any WakeMed location. We want to make sure your ticker is in tip top shape!
We care about your heart because we care about you. From our heart to yours, we want you healthy! To learn more about heart disease in women, including what you can do to reduce your risk, visit wakemed.org/loveyourheart.
