My Message

Hello,

This year marks the Cardiac Health Foundation of Canada’s 34th ANNUAL WALK OF LIFE on Saturday, May 26, 2018 at the Ontario Science Centre. My family and I are participating this year and I would like to invite you to join me in raising funds for this worthy cause.

Last year my family was touched by Congenital heart disease (CHD) when my son Jake was born with heart defects that required open-heart surgery to correct when he was 5 days old. CHD is the world’s leading birth defect, with about 1 in 90 Canadian children born with the condition. Sixty years ago, only about 20% of children born with CHD survived to adulthood, however that number has since increased to about 90% - this is a testament to the incredible work of dedicated, talented Canadian medical professionals at pioneering intuitions such as SickKids Hospital and for which it is impossible to put into words how truly grateful my family and I are!

Your generous support of the 2018 WALK OF LIFE will help with a new project to establish the 1st Pediatric Exercise Medicine Room and Cardiac Rehab Program for kids and adolescents in Canada at SickKids Hospital. This initiative will assist children with pediatric heart disorders to engage in a more active lifestyle by receiving customized exercise prescriptions tailored to the unique needs of their diagnosis. It will help expand the work of SickKids in positively influencing the life course of children with complex cardiac conditions and enhance the Cardiac Health Foundation of Canada’s continued commitment to recovery through cardiovascular rehabilitation. Fundraising efforts are in partnership with SickKids Hospital, Cardiac Kids and Bike2Play.

Thank you and all the best,

Andrea

We wish we could be there for the Walk of Life. If we could, we would walk around the world to show our support for this initiative and to thank Sickkids for fixing little hearts.
