Another successful Heart and Stroke month in Hope

On behalf of the Heart and Stroke Foundation Tri-Cities/Fraser Valley area office, I would like to offer heartfelt thanks to the people of Hope for their continuing support of the foundation during Heart Month.

Sabine Keil and Steve Becker of Hope Pharmasave recently presented their company's Heart and Stroke Foundation donation to Gillian Yardley. The funds were raised during Heart Month.

On behalf of the Heart and Stroke Foundation Tri-Cities/Fraser Valley area office, I would like to offer heartfelt thanks to the people of Hope for their continuing support of the foundation during Heart Month.

In February, over 30 volunteer canvassers and captains put their hearts into it and raised more than $3090 for vital heart and stroke research. Combined with the $1238 raised by Cooper’s ‘Heart Fund Day’, ‘Heart Month at Pharmasave’, ‘Painting the Town Red’ organized by Barton Insurance and many personal and business donations, the people of Hope have celebrated February in a heartfelt way and raised over $4300.

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&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.
