Why support this great cause?

In memory of the late great Dr. Terry Kavanagh, who was the Cardiac Health Foundation of Canada's Honorary Patron and former Chief Medical Officer, we would like to humbly honour his extraordinary vision and revolutionary work at this year's 35th Anniversary of the WALK OF LIFE. He was instrumental in championing Cardiac Rehab around the world and his research and advocacy of walking and exercise are the reasons why he started the WALK OF LIFE in 1984.

Last year, the Cardiac Health Foundation of Canada established and opened the 1st Paediatric Exercise Medicine Room and Cardiac Rehab Program for kids and adolescents in Canada at The Hospital for Sick Children. We still need your support to help fulfill our commitment, ensure this program continues for years to come, and get young heart patients moving so that they not only survive but are able to live long healthy lives! 

Our mission of 'Prevention, Education & Cardiovascular Rehabilitation' has gone full circle from supporting Dr. Terry Kavanagh's pioneer work in establishing cardiac rehab for adults across Canada 50 years ago to now working to support kids! The WALK OF LIFE will still continue to support over 25 cardiac rehab programs across Canada and cardiac health-related organizations such as University of Toronto's Dr. Terry Kavanagh Heart Health Lab; Canadian Congenital Heart Alliance; The Canadian SADS Foundation; and the Mikey Network.
