February is ‘Give With Heart’ month in support of the University of Ottawa Heart Institute Foundation. As Canada’s largest and foremost cardiovascular health centre, we feel very fortunate to have this great facility so close to home. From SoleFit co-owner Cassandra Grant;
In the winter of 2010, our Dad suffered what we thought was a heart attack and we were fearful that we were going to lose him. It turned out to be his electrical system and thanks to the Heart Institute and Dr. Lemery, they were able to conduct a procedure called a cardio ablation that allowed him to return to his normal amazing self. We at SoleFit are grateful to the Heart Institute and to the very special team of doctors and caregivers that enabled this to happen. This fundraising event is a small way that we can say “thank you” for giving us back our dad. We are very grateful for the excellent work and research performed at the Ottawa Heart Institute and we feel so very fortunate to have this amazing organization in our very own city.
