More than 60 years ago, a visionary group of Canadians, including physicians and researchers, established the National Heart Foundation of Canada. Today the Heart and Stroke Foundation of Canada is at work in communities from coast to coast, with: 130,000 volunteers and close to two million donors. Since 1956, the Foundation has raised and invested more than $1.3 billion in leading-edge heart disease and stroke research. Today, heart disease and stroke take one life every 7 minutes and 90% of Canadians have at least one risk factor.

In celebration of Therapeutic Recreation month, Columbia will be joining the challenge with other facilities in Lethbridge by logging our minutes of physical activity. The challenge runs for the month of February, with the winner being announced in early March. Recreation will record the minutes of the daily exercise program and individuals interested can obtain a log sheet from either Pam or Veronica to record their own progress. Together we will combine the totals. All minutes of activity need to be submitted to recreation by March 2, 2015. We can do it!
