Supporting The Heart and Stroke Foundation

Wednesday, August 6th, 2014

On Sunday, August 10 The Trivieri family is hosting their Annual Golf Tournament in support of The Heart and Stroke Foundation in the Niagara Region. This event has raised $137,526.25 in funds during the past fourteen years. This year, John Dickhout of The Achievement Centre is sponsoring a hole.

Since March of 2013, John’s heart has been functioning with the aid of an implanted pace-maker/defibrillator. For this reason, the Heart and Stroke Foundation is a charity that means a great deal to him.

Nine in ten Canadians have at least one risk factor for heart disease and stroke. The goal of The Heart and Stroke Foundation is to reduce Canadian’s rate of death from heart disease and stroke by 25% and reduce their risk factors by 10% by 2020.
