Editor, The Times:
Thank-you Clearwater for making 2016 the best year for the local Heart and Stroke campaign.
Your donations, time and effort you have put into the campaign have paid off. We have raised over $7,000 this year!
Huge thanks for all the volunteers for your many hours, going door to door, and volunteering at Buy-Low Foods. To Buy-Low Foods, the volunteers always commented on your how kind and helpful the staff were. As for the staff at the Wells Gray Hotel, I really appreciate all you do to support Heart and Stroke. Hotel owners Jeff and Bonnie Ruttan support the Heart and Stroke volunteers and make my job job easier. Thank you to the North Thompson Times for their support every year.
Thank-you again Clearwater for your research dollars. Heart and Stroke Foundation has come a long way.
Since 1952, the cardiovascular death rate in Canada has declined by more than 75 per cent – and nearly 40 per cent in the last decade – largely due to research advances in surgical procedures, drug therapies and prevention efforts.
Research is continuing; prevention is key. You can do your part by eating right and living well. This includes being active.
Congratulations to Joe Short, the winner of the Heart and Stroke gift basket.
