MILFORD, Conn., Jan. 22, 2013 Acaa 2008 Olympic all-around champion Nastia Liukin will walk the runway in The Heart Truth Red Dress® Collection Fashion Show at New York City's historic Hammerstein Ballroom on Feb. 6, along with Australian snowboard sensation Torah Bright, as part of a partnership between SUBWAY® restaurants and presenting sponsor Diet Coke.

In celebration of the third consecutive year that SUBWAY® restaurants will have a famous fan walk the runway, the brand launched a national sweepstakes on Facebook.com/Subway on Jan. 14th, offering three fans a chance to win an all-expense paid trip for two to New York City and tickets to the show.

"We are glad to have Nastia and Torah represent SUBWAY® as we support women's heart health," said Tony Pace, Global Chief Marketing Officer at SUBWAY® Franchise World Headquarters. "They both train hard and eat fresh so I'm sure they will enjoy their moments in the runway spotlight."

Last year, SUBWAY® Famous Fan and swim mom Debbie Phelps walked the runway with son Michael Phelps in the front row as she made her fashion show debut. Two years ago, Laila Ali walked the Red Dress Fashion Show on the brand's behalf.

The Red Dress® is the national symbol for women and heart disease awareness, and a powerful reminder for women to take care of their hearts. The National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute established The Heart Truth and introduced the Red Dress in 2002 as the national symbol of women and heart disease awareness, and this February marks the 11th year of the campaign's commitment to women's heart health.
