Februray is Heart Month. Today, heart disease and stroke take one life every 7 minutes and 90% of Canadians have at least one risk factor. Heart Month is the Heart and Stroke Foundation's key opportunity to reach millions of Canadians in February and alert them to the risks of heart disease and stroke. Volunteers are the face and the voice of the Heart and Stroke Foundation and Heart Month is a critical time when we depend on you to share our message. Many of you may choose to hold a Jump Rope for Heart event in your school. There are a lot of other ways to celebrate heart month as well, and spread the message about changing lifestyle factors to reduce risk factors.
