21st Annual Hearts in Motion Golf Tournament
As part of our fundraising campaign for the Health Heart Schools’ Program we are holding a 21st Annual Hearts in Motion Golf Tournament on October 3, 2018 at Bridgewater Country Club, in Fort Erie.
Heart Niagara appreciates your consideration in reaching our goal of $80,000 to support the delivery of valuable services to more than 4,500 grade 9 students in 27 Niagara secondary schools in 2018-2019 school year.
This fundraising appeal will specifically support the Healthy Heart Schools’ Program which is delivered by Heart Niagara as part of the Grade 9 health and physical education program. The program focuses on increasing positive behaviours including physical activity, healthy eating, and tobacco use. Reaching every student twice to address how knowledge of these factors relates to making informed decisions to increase healthy growth and development.
The awareness and assessment procedures that are involved in the Healthy Heart Schools’ Program may identify those students whose family history indicates potential genetic risks for future coronary heart disease.
As change makers your support will continue to:
Teach AED and CPR at all the schools in each School Board with the highest rate of CPR certification in any Canadian school system. These lifesaving skills save lives.
Provides 4,000 families a year with a health report to both adolescent and parents on their cardiovascular and metabolic health. A copy of the report is also sent to their Primary Care Provider though the Healthy Heart Schools’ Program.
Continue to place AEDs throughout the Region in high risk areas and manage an AED registry. To date over 720 AED’s been placed to save lives in Niagara.
Publishing articles on Adolescent Heart Health in medical magazines including CMAJ, BMJ, and NIH to name a few
All dollars raised are invested in Niagara’s youth though the Healthy Heart Schools’ Program – a Niagara Specific Solution.
