Coronavirus (COVID-19) Update
In this difficult and challenging time, we must act to take care of each other and our community. As such, we have made the decision to postpone or cancel some events and programs, and take others to a virtual platform.
- Get details on individual programs here.
- Find the latest updates and precautions about COVID-19 and heart disease and stroke here.
Thank you for your continued support today and every day.
Our Group Therapy team (Sandra Chisholm, Maureen McDonald, Ruth Buckland, Heidi Rausch) have all been afftcted directly by heart and stroke issues. Ruth's partner Dave suffered a serious stroke this past spring and will forever deal with severe challenges. My mother suffered from heart disease. Heidi's mother Susie - one of our biggest fans - suffered from heart disease and Maureen has family and friends affected. So this fundraising for us is very close to home and for most of us is the only active fundraising we do annually. Please help us reach our team goal.
Heart disease and stroke are a leading cause of death among women in Canada, yet many are still unaware of the risk to their health. Canadians are losing mothers, daughters, sisters and friends to diseases that could have been prevented.
We started My Own Fundraiser to give Canadian women more hope, more time, and more life. Every dollar we raise for Heart & Stroke will fund medical breakthroughs in the prevention and treatment of heart disease and stroke.
Please help us reach our fundraising goal by making a donation today. Together, we can transform the health of women in Canada and bring hope to families affected by heart disease and stroke.
Thanks in advance for your support.
