Heart & Stroke Foundation Announces “Walk to the Beat” Fundraiser

Published on: 2012/07/10 - in Releases

On July 28th, the Heart and Stroke Foundation is hosting their 2nd Annual “Walk To The Beat!” fundraiser.

This year, there are 3 routes in Kingston to choose from: 2, 4 or 8km, and you can feel free to walk or run.

The event will be held at City Park, closer to King St and Barrie St, and registration for the event is kicking off at 10AM.

Currently, heart disease and stroke are affecting Canadians more than ever; it is predicted that 1 in 3 Canadians will die from either a heart attack or stroke. Furthermore, according to most recent stats, these afflictions are also the #1 killer of women in Canada! Hitting closer to home, at least 1 person was admitted to a Kingston area hospital, as a result of a stroke or heart related incident, every 4 hours!

Finally, to register, participants should go online to www.fitforheart.ca or call in to the Heart and Stroke office at 613-384-2871.
