Shoppers can support the life-saving work of the American Heart Association by purchasing products and services beginning in February, American Heart Month.

BUCYRUS, OH — Shoe Sensation is joining the fight against heart disease and stroke by supporting the American Heart Association, the nation’s oldest and largest voluntary organization dedicated to heart and brain health for all. This February during American Heart Months, and continuing through the end of March, Shoe Sensation and other companies across the country are participating in the American Heart Association’s fundraising campaign, Life Is Why.

“Shoe Sensation has Heart and Sole! We are excited to partner with the American Heart Association to help educate and raise awareness about heart disease in our communities. We all have a reason why, and with the support of our community members, we can make a difference in this fight.” —Dave Schoengart, CEO of Shoe Sensation.

From February 1st through March 31st, Shoe Sensation will provide customers and followers with the opportunity to donate to the American Heart Association in stores and online. In-store customer customers can donate by rounding up or donating any other dollar amount at checkout. Everyone has a reason to give, with their donation, customers will be able to fill out a heart with their reason why. This heart will be displayed in our stores.

Donations through Life Is Why’s participating retailers—no matter the amount—allow the Association to:

  • Fund research that can improve the health outcomes of health and stroke patients;
  • Train more than 2.5 million high school students in CPR annually;
  • Support the work of local entrepreneurs and organizations working to improve health outcomes in under-resourced communities.
