VGH Centre for Cardiovascular Health
Welcome to our fundraising page!
We are delighted to invite you to celebrate our 20th annual “Have a Healthy Heart” fundraiser for the VGH Centre for Cardiovascular Health. Over the years, we have raised $1.3 million so that everyone can have equal access to our cardiac rehabilitation programs. Last year, our program subsidized nearly $60,000 of program fees allowing 100 participants with financial barriers to participate. It is thanks to your incredible support and generosity, that we can continue to deliver our excellent programs at VGH and in the community, as well as specialty classes like yoga, meditation, cooking classes and patient and staff education.
This year, for our 20th fundraiser, we have set an ambitious goal to raise a total of $1.5 million. We hope you can join us at our specially planned fundraiser event on February 16, 2017.
