6 new ways to make a difference

Join a movement of fundraisers coming together in six new ways to beat heart disease and stroke. Let’s fundraise as one to help #HeartandStrokeBeatasOne and save lives!

Choose your own fundraising adventure!

With six fundraising options to choose from, enjoy connecting with others online and much more all while funding lifesaving breakthroughs!

We’ve never needed your efforts more. Heart attack, stroke, and related conditions claim the life of a person in Canada every five minutes. But your fundraising brings hope.

Do what you love! Fundraise when and how you like. When we beat as one, we accomplish so much more together.

3 easy steps to get going:

Step 1:

Register online

Once you’ve chosen your fundraising activity, then register online (as an individual or team), and set a goal.

Step 2:

Tell your story

Login and personalize your fundraising page. Add a photo, share your story, and tell the world why you’re fundraising.

Step 3:

Kick-off your fundraiser

First, donate to yourself to set the bar. Then, share your personal page link through social media and email to rally your community for support.

How to get started

Share a Talent

Turn your special skill into a fun fundraiser! Lead a virtual fitness class, perform for an audience, teach a baking tutorial, or sell your art or crafts. A gamer? You can even host a live gaming stream! All in support of Heart & Stroke.
