Putting your Heart into it......

June 22, 2011 

Heart and Stroke Foundation of Canada’s Board of Directors is holding their annual board meeting at Murray Premises Hotel.  We are pleased to welcome such a dynamic group to the hotel and our city. 

More than 50 years ago, a visionary group of Canadians, including physicians and researchers, founded the National Heart Foundation of Canada with big hopes for the future.

For Newfoundland and Labrador, The Foundation was founded in 1964 when a group of twelve highly motivated volunteers recruited canvassers to complete a residential campaign that raised $15,000. Over the years the organization continued to grow and develop into the strong entity it is today.

The Heart and Stroke Foundation raises funds to support research and health promotion programs.  We believe we can help more people by investing in research and education to prevent heart disease and stroke and to develop better treatments for the diseases.

This group is doing amazing work and we're so pleased to be able to help.
