Why I’m a fundraiser

Find out what motivates community members to canvass for Heart & Stroke.

Carol, an Okanagan Heart Month Volunteer for 28 years knows the value of sharing the signs of heart attack. She’s survived three of them and wants to help others do the same.

Rob's wife, Carma, was a Heart Month Volunteer who suffered a serious stroke at the age of 48. Rob decided to volunteer for both of them to share life-saving information. You can too by sharing the signs of a stroke with as many people as possible.
