The Cardiac Health Foundation of Canada was founded in 1965, and our mission is to promote and develop cardiac rehabilitation programs and services supporting active recovery, public education and primary and secondary prevention initiatives in reducing cardiovascular disease in Canada. Did You Know the risk factors for heart disease are: family history of heart disease, smoking, obesity, high blood pressure, unhealthy blood lipid levels, diabetes, sedentary lifestyle, high alcohol consumption and poor nutrition? The majority of these risk factors are preventative, and the first step to improving the heart health of our county is reducing our chances of cardiac disease from ever happening in the first place.
Thank you for supporting the Cardiac Health Foundation of Canada’s 34th WALK OF LIFE and being active consistent with lifestyle change! We truly appreciate your support and fundraising efforts for 'Prevention, Education and Cardiovascular Rehabilitation'.
