FEBRUARY: Heart & Stroke Month – Take Action!

Heart disease and stroke take 1 in 3 Canadians before their time and is the #1 killer of women – taking more women’s lives than all forms of cancer combined. This February, more than 85,000 volunteers are canvassing door-to-door across the country to help change these statistics.

It’s not too late to canvass online this February! Online canvassing is a great way to raise life-giving funds – all from the comfort of your own home. Click on the red “Canvass Online” button below to get started!
