Make Death Wait: A Campaign from the Heart and Stroke Foundation


OUR MISSION: SAVE MORE LIVES.

The mission of the Heart and Stroke Foundation (HSF) is to reduce deaths due to heart disease and stroke by 25% by 2020. That’s 25,000 lives – the size of a typical town – that could be saved every year.

A recent HSF survey reveals that Canadians aren’t making time for healthy choices, which is contributing to the fact that heart disease and stroke is the #1 killer of women, and the cause of 1 in 3 deaths in this country.  In fact, 82 per cent of Ontarians say they would be more active and 63 per cent say they would eat healthier if they could, but cite time as a barrier preventing them from doing so.

The HSF wants Canadians to help them reach their goal of making one million actions to Make Death Wait by the end of February 2012.
