This year we hope to raise over $30,000 and can’t do it without you. We ask all Zumba4Heart participants raise a minimum of $100 to help fund life-saving Heart & Stroke research.

The strength of Heart & Stroke and every Canadian is interconnected. Communities across the country depend on us and we depend on them. And we all have unfinished business. Now is the time to address it. Now is the time to make sure we don’t miss out on life.
