Many events planned for Heart Month
February is Heart Month.
Heart disease and stroke takes the life of one Canadian every seven minutes. Funds raised from the February Person to Person campaign will support life-saving research, health promotion and advocacy initiatives to realize a future free of heart disease and stroke.
Throughout February, the Heart and Stroke Foundation raises awareness and funds for stroke and cardiovascular research. This event will kick off the month and includes the Spruce Kings, who are holding special Heart Month events at their games in February.
Meet the leadership volunteers, many of whom share a poignant connection to the cause and an inspirational drive to battle the winter weather as they fundraise door to door this Heart Month.
The Heart and Stroke Foundation, a volunteer-based health charity, leads in eliminating heart disease and stroke and reducing their impact through the advancement of research and its application, the promotion of healthy living and advocacy.
