What is Heart Month?

Heart Month encourages individuals, groups and businesses to raise funds and awareness for the University of Ottawa Heart Institute. It's giving that goes straight to the heart of care in your community.

The Ottawa Heart Institute's new building will be completed in the Spring of 2018 and there is an urgent need to purchase new cardiac equipment.

This Heart Month, there's also a new way to support the University of Ottawa Heart Institute while putting your heart together with generous community partners who support life-saving cardiovascular care in Ottawa. Take the Heart2Hearts Challenge.

Heart2Hearts Challenge is truly a win-win-win scenario. You win by pledging to take on a heart-healthy challenge during the month of February. Your funds raised or donation wins when they are doubled with matching funds from big-hearted partners. And, best of all, we all win by supporting life-saving cardiovascular care in the heart of our community. Take the challenge!
