The WALK OF LIFE is a national fundraising campaign organized by the Cardiac Health Foundation of Canada and administered by local cardiac rehabilitation programs in their own area. The mission of the Cardiac Health Foundation is to provide public education on cardiac health and heart disease prevention, support cardiac rehabilitation programs across the country in reducing cardiovascular disease, and to provide funding for scholarships for cardiac research. Walking and exercise-based cardiac rehabilitation programs are widely recommended as part of the continuum of cardiovascular care and the reason why the National WALK OF LIFE campaign was started. In 2003, 15 communities across Canada raised over $200,000 for cardiac rehabilitation. In 2015, over $1 Million was raised for cardiac rehabilitation by 26 programs across the country.
On June 7, 2016, the Cardiac Tele-Rehab program at Seaway Valley Community Health Centre will be hosting their 1st Annual WALK OF LIFE. We invite you to come join us at Lamoureux Park at 5:00 PM for a 3km Fun-Walk to support our local program. This event aims to bring together SVCHC clients, volunteers, staff and community partners to raise awareness for Cardiovascular Rehabilitation and Secondary Prevention. All funds raised from this event will go directly back into the SVCHC programs.
