Welcome to the 
Cardiac Fitness Association 2020 Virtual Walk of Life!

Join the CFA virtually for a fun family day in support of a great cause!

The CFA was chartered in 1980 by a group of Dr. Schaman's patients participating in his state-of-the-art cardiac rehabilitation program. Their goal was to ensure that this innovative cardiac rehabilitation program would continue into the future and be available to all who require it, regardless of means.

VIRTUAL Walk of Life - 2020


Due to COVID-19 we are encouraging all registrants to walk, run, bike, dance or otherwise participate safely within their social bubble! Please email your activity and  duration/distance to cfaheart1980@gmail.com by September 18, 2020.


Submit your donations online or mail them to: Cardiac Fitness Association 1010 Hopewell Creek Rd., Breslau, ON N0B 1M0 (Do not mail cash!)

Since the Clinic has been closed down by COVID19 we have been unable to see each others smiling faces each week, or the grumpy faces either.  You can change that!

 

As you and your team complete your Walk of Life 2020 take a picture of yourself and your team as you walk in your ‘safe’ place and email it to our CFA email:  cfaheart1980@gmail.com.  Your picture will be displayed along with pictures of all the other energetic walkers on the CFA Instagram page.

 

Thanks again for your support and hopefully we can meet again soon.  T-shirts are available for all registrants, please contact me at the above email to arrange for pick up. Stay safe.

 

John Burns and the CFA Board. 




 

COVID 19 has disrupted all of our lives.  It is requiring us to postpone our Breslau, Walk of Life from the usual time in June to a later time in September.  Being optimists, we are predicting that sufficient COVID 19 restrictions will be lifted to allow our Walk of Life 2020 (WoL2020) to take place September 14, 15, & 16, during our regular class times.  If we are unable to gather inside we will have outdoor canopies for protection from the ‘sun’ - optimism again.

 

We are fortunate to have 16 corporate sponsors supporting our WoL2020.  The corporate sponsor logos are shown subsequently.

 

We encourage you to get your pledges submitted as soon as possible even though this year we have an additional 3 month window of time.  The online portal is now open for online registrations and donations and cheques can always be mailed to the clinic, just add a note with the cheque indicating who was instrumental in obtaining the pledges.

 

We will need to be diligent after the walk is finished to submit our funds raised to the Clinic staff before the end of September.  In previous years we have received a grant cheque from the Cardiac Health Foundation of Canada (CHFC).  However, to qualify this year, we must provide the number of people that participated in our walk, and the total funds raised on or before September 30, 2020.  With our walks ending Sept. 16 we won’t have a lot of time and we don’t want to miss the opportunity to share in the National Grant.

 

Whether the sun is shining today, or it’s snowing, right now as I look outside it’s doing both, keep well and be safe.  I know I don’t have to tell you but I will: Wash your hands often, keep the 6 foot physical distancing, wear your cloth face covering properly and don’t hoard toilet paper.

 

As Dr. John always says, “Take Care of yourself, nobody else will”, and I will add a prefix to Dr John’s statement.

 

“More now, than ever before, Take care of yourself, nobody else will”

Join the CFA for a fun family day in support of a great cause!

Fundraising is necessary to provide this cardiac rehabilitation program at little or no cost to the patient. Each year since 2005 the CFA has joined the national Walk of Life and with your help is able to raise the funds necessary to keep providing this much needed program at the Ontario Aerobics Centre. The CFA is grateful to the Cardiac Health Foundation of Canada for continuing to extend their support and enable us to be a part of this national fundraiser for cardiac rehabilitation. All funds raised by the CFA are directed to the cardiac rehabilitation program at the Ontario Aerobics Centre in Breslau under the medical direction of Dr. John Schaman M. D. As well, each year the CHFC generously provides a grant to the CFA based on our fundraising efforts with the CFA Walk of Life.
