Olympic downhill champion Lindsey Vonn, who had to withdraw from the Sochi Games because of a knee injury, hit the catwalk at New York Fashion Week Thursday night to highlight the Go Red campaign to end heart disease in women.

Vonn, who was wearing a creation by Cynthia Rowley for the The Heart Truth Fall 2014 collection, held her crutches aloft to acknowledge the crowd and later took to Twitter to thank supporters.
