VGH Centre for Cardiovascular Health 2018

Welcome to our fundraising page!

We are delighted to invite you to celebrate our 21st annual “Have a Healthy Heart” fundraiser for the VGH Centre for Cardiovascular Health.  Proceeds from last year’s fundraiser made it possible for our program to replace three exercise machines, offer three Healthy Heart Cooking classes and for three staff members to attend the Canadian Cardiovascular Congress. And as usual, the majority of our fundraiser proceeds go to subsidize individuals who cannot afford the program fee. Without your contributions, access to cardiac rehabilitation for those with financial barriers would not be possible.

We hope you can join us at our specially planned fundraiser event on February 15, 2018.
