The Peel/Halton Hills Chapter of the Heart and Stroke Foundation of Ontario has set a goal to raise over $175,000 during its door-to-door campaign, running now until February 28. "We are thrilled to launch Heart Month 2007in Halton Hills," said Heart and Stroke area manager Shawn Keba. "Whether it's joining a local fundraising effort or canvassing your neighbourhood, everyone can get involved and help the Foundation." In Halton Hills alone there are over 400 people who volunteer to save lives by canvassing in their neighbourhoods. A Heart and Stroke Heart Month Campaign Volunteer can be clearly identified by a familiar red and white Foundation logo button, and the logo is also prominently displayed on the canvasser kit as well as on materials distributed by the Foundation volunteer. The logo will appear again on the tax receipt should a donation be made. Heart Month 2007 includes a wide variety of activities across Halton Hills including Jump Rope for Heart and Hoops for Heart in area schools, Fit for Heart events and businesses raising money through various initiatives. In the Halton Peel area, one in five residents, aged 35 and older report they have high blood pressure. The money raised during Heart Month will go towards reasearch into the root cause of heart disease and stroke. Financial support funds world-class research being conducted in almost 450 hospitals and research institutions in communities across Ontario.
