February is Heart Month
February is Heart Month! How will you celebrate?
You could join the University of Ottawa Heart Institute’s new Heart2Hearts campaign – make a pledge to take on a heart-healthy challenge and support the Institute.
You could canvass for the Heart and Stroke Foundation, or find other creative ways to offer support, like Diana Hannah has by donating a portion of the sales of her book.
In between fundraising activities, you could sit back and read about Larry Bird’s arrhythmia issues, and the differences between an athletic and a non-athlete’s heart.
You can even help the cause just by going to a hockey game! If you’re in Saskatchewan, go to the Estevan Bruins game on February 12, or check out these Manitoba Junior Hockey League games.
Or if you feel like dressing up, check out Norton’s Razzle Dazzle Gala in Charlottetown, or the Heart Beat Gala in Timmins.
However you choose to mark the occasion, have an active and heart-healthy month!
