Why support this great cause?

This year marks an important milestone as we celebrate the 55th Anniversary of the Cardiac Health Foundation of Canada. Since 1965, we have raised over $15M to support 'Prevention, Education, and Cardiovascular Rehabilitation'! Walking and exercise-based programs are now widely recommended as part of the continuum of cardiovascular care and the reason why the late, great Dr. Terry Kavanagh, who was the Cardiac Health Foundation of Canada's Honorary Founder and Patron, started the Walk in 1984.  His legacy continues with our VIRTUAL WALK OF LIFE on Saturday, June 27, 2020!

We all have a heart.  You probably know someone suffering from heart disease.  Most of us do.  To help these people - to help protect ourselves and our loved ones - we all need to get involved! Despite the emergence of COVID-19 all over the world, heart disease continues to be the number one cause of death.  We are committed to supporting the work of our cardiac rehab programs across Canada. 

Our mission has gone full circle from supporting Dr. Kavanagh's pioneer work in establishing cardiac rehab for adults across Canada over 53 years ago, to also supporting kids.  In 2018, we established and opened the first Paediatric Exercise Medicine Room and Cardiac Rehab Program for kids and adolescents in Canada at the SickKids Hospital.  We continue to support over 25 cardiac rehab programs across Canada participating in the National Walk of Life Campaign, such as the legendary Toronto Rehab; our commitment to the University of Toronto - Dr. Terry Kavanagh Heart Health Lab; and to cardiac health-related organizations such as the Canadian Congenital Heart Alliance and the Mikey Network.
