We’re ‘seeing red’ for good reasons this September as Donegal’s Bali Clothing hosts a stylish fundraiser for the Irish Heart Foundation.
Alongside the eye-catching campaign, they are promoting the message of #HerHeartMatters to raise awareness of heart disease in Irish women.
Bali enlisted a little help from friends across Donegal to get the word out this week. Two gatherings took place in Ballybofey and Letterkenny with people from across sport, social media and media donning the bright red sweaters to celebrate Heart Month and shine a light on the importance of self-care for healthy hearts.
Thanks to Lisa Crampsie (the_lisa_logic) for bringing the campaign together and inviting me to join in. Thanks also to Gabrielle McMonagle from Gabrielle’s Diary for braving the Drumboe woodland walk to take the pictures (in heels!) and thanks to the Bali founders Steven and Martin O’Reilly for their generous support of the Irish Heart Foundation.

Did you know that 1 in 4 women die from heart disease and stroke? Yet research has shown that heart disease in women has been under-researched, under-diagnosed, and under-treated for far too long.
The ‘Her Heart Matters’ campaign with support of the HSE and Healthy Ireland, aims to increase awareness of the risk of heart disease and stroke in women and the fact that this risk increases as women enter menopause.
The good news is 80 per cent of premature heart disease and stroke is preventable through changes to our lifestyle.
The Irish Heart Foundation has developed a range of resources to help you protect your heart health during and after menopause. Check out the free advice pages and videos at: https://irishheart.ie/campaigns/her-heart-matters-heart-month-2022/
