Walk of Life history 

Founded in 1965, Cardiac Health Foundation Of Canada is a charitable organisation that is dedicated to supporting cardiac rehabilitation and the secondary prevention of heart disease. Over that time, the CHFC has raised nearly $7 million for facilities, patient education, research, scholarships ans equipement. 

Walking is the preferred way to stay fit. It is also a proven way to keep your heart healthy. Cardiac rehabilitation still relies on walking to this day. That’s why the CCRF started the Walk of Life, a unique event for the whole family to promote a heart healthy lifestyle.

Recently, the Walk of Life became a national fund raising event, hosted by more than 40 cardiac rehabilitation programs across Canada to raise awareness about heart disease and to financially support cardiac rehabilitation services. Simply stated, all funds raised by the programs stay in their respective community. 

Canadian Association of Cardiac Rehabilitation (CACR)

The CACR is a non-profit educational organization for health professionals working in cardiac rehabilitation. Currently, the CACR has approximately 400 members from across Canada reprensenting physicians, nurses, physiotherapists, kinesiologists, social workers, dietitians, psychologists and others. The CACR is dedicated to building awareness of the benefits of cardiac rehabilitation, research, continuing education and program consistency through national guidelines. The CACR is working together with the CCRF on the Walk of Life providing leadership and encouraging participation.
