Boomers Strut Their Stuff in the Heart Truth Fashion Show
Thursday night during World MasterCard Fashion Week, the Heart Truth Fashion Show raised awareness for heart disease and stroke affecting women in style. The show, in its sixth year, starred some of Canada’s most celebrated woman, including Olympic gold medalist Jamie Sale, four-time Olympic gold medalist Hayley Wickenheiser, Breakfast Television host Jennifer Valentyne to name just a few, strutting the runway in red dresses made by some of Canada’s top designers.
But the real stars of the show were boomers and Model of Health winners Gladys Wenger, 90, Margaret Abbot-Brown, 73, and Claire MacDonnell, 83. As soon they hit the runway, the audience shot to their feet, hooting and hollering with comments like “I can’t believe her age!” We know better than anyone that aging is not what it used to be. With the right balance of lifestyle and diet, aging gracefully is truly possible and these women were proof, inspiring boomers everywhere.
