Did you know that every five minutes, someone in this country dies from heart disease, stroke and related conditions? And that people with these conditions are at higher risk for complications, and death, if they contract COVID-19?
Not only is the virus much deadlier for people with chronic conditions, COVID-19 can also damage previously healthy hearts and have serious effects on the brain.
We are on the verge of significant breakthroughs, however, and your donation can help save lives.
Every year, Heart & Stroke volunteer fundraisers across Canada raise funds for this critical research. But this year, with the COVID-19 pandemic, donations – and research funding – have never been at greater risk. That’s why I’m fundraising to make a difference.
You can make a difference, too. Your help is needed more than ever to help beat these diseases.
By donating, you’ll be funding the next big breakthrough, fueling the scientific discovery and collaborations needed to save lives.
I’m virtually canvassing for the first time, so I really need your support. Plus, February is Heart Month, and Canadian Pacific Railway will match donations (up to $100,000 total donations). That means your support will have double the impact in February!
Please donate to help fund this lifesaving research – together, we’ll beat heart disease and stroke.
Thank you for supporting me!
