Heart & Stroke Foundation

The Heart and Stroke foundation's goal is to raise funds for the research on heart diseases. Their vision is to "prevent disease", "save live" and "promote recovery". Many events occur during the year and the Banquet du coeur is the big event that happened annually. This reception takes place in the Montreal area. It is for business community who wants to make donation to the organisation.

 

The foundation has worked on many other projects during the last year. For example, they created the "Jump Rope for Heart" program who's mission is to give children skip ropes and encouraged them to do cardiovascular exercises. This program is now established in many schools.

 

This organisation needs more volunteers to raise funds and to promote healthier habits in the community. For example, they need volunteers during the Heart Month and at other moments to do door-to-door publicity and raise funds.  Other opportunities are also possible depending on your region. To know more about volunteer opportunities or to volunteer yourself, you simply have to contact your local office or send an email to the foundation.
