February Is Heart Month In Canada Council Proclaims Heart Month In Tweed Every February the Heart and Stroke Foundation celebrates Heart Month by holding its Person-to-Person Campaign.  During this month, more than 100,000 passionate Canadians selflessly brave the cold and give their time by canvassing local neighbourhoods to collect donations to help the Foundation's mission - to prevent disease, save lives and promote recovery.

Since its founding in 1952, Heart and Stroke Foundation funded research has been the engine driving relentless progress in heart disease and stroke prevention and care across Canada.  Over the past six decades, the generosity of donors has enabled investments of almost $1.4 billion into life-saving research - research that has revolutionized the prevention and treatment of heart disease and stroke.  The impact of these advances has resulted in a 75 per cent reduction in the rate of death from heart disease and stroke.  Despite that remarkable progress, heart disease and stroke still takes one life every seven minutes in Canada.

The Council of the Municipality of Tweed is pleased to recognize the important work of the Heart and Stroke Foundation by proclaiming February as Hearth Month in the Municipality of Tweed.
