A heartfelt thank-you to Castlegar

On behalf of the Heart and Stroke Foundation of BC and Yukon’s Kelowna-area office, I would like to offer heartfelt thanks to the people of Castlegar for their continuing support of the Foundation during Heart Month.

On behalf of the Heart and Stroke Foundation of BC and Yukon’s Kelowna-area office, I would like to offer heartfelt thanks to the people of Castlegar for their continuing support of the Foundation during Heart Month.

In February, volunteers in Castlegar put their hearts into it and raised more than $4,800 for vital heart and stroke research.

Heart disease and stroke are cutting the lives of Canadians short. Your donations during Heart Month support research, health promotion and advocacy to help Canadians live longer, healthier lives.

This year alone, your donations have allowed us to: fund $5 million in world-class research in B.C.; launch the ‘My Heart and Stroke Health’ mobile app to help Canadians reduce their risk for heart disease and stroke; and continue our stewardship role in developing the B.C. Stroke Strategy for province-wide improvements in the prevention and treatment of stroke.

With your help we are moving one step closer to realizing our vision of generations free from heart disease and stroke.
