HOW YOU CAN HELP
*Take the Quiz
Take the Make Health Last Quiz at http://www.makehealthlast.ca to assess your risk of developing heart disease or stroke.
Canadians are living longer. But not necessarily healthier. On average, we’ll spend our final 10 years with sickness and disease. However, we can change this. The choices we make now can help shape a future of strength and vitality instead. The Heart and Stroke Foundation wants to help Canadians like you make those healthy choices. So you can spend every moment not just living, but truly alive. Now’s the time to Make Health Last

The Heart and Stroke Foundation relies on volunteers with a wide variety of skills. Put your expertise to work through one of our many volunteer opportunities.
