Heart­felt thanks

South Waikato News - - OPINION - Ruth Straw­bridge Heart Health Ad­vo­cate Hamil­ton

I would like to sin­cerely thank Char­maine Don­ald­son, Mata­mata Heart Health Group and Joy Mor­gan, Toko­roa and District Lions Club and their team of vol­un­teers for their sup­port of the Heart Foun­da­tion Heart Week Ap­peal, Fe­bru­ary 11 -17. They did a fan­tas­tic job of co-or­di­nat­ing and ‘‘man­ning’’ sites in Pu­taruru and Toko­roa. Also, many thanks to the peo­ple in the com­mu­nity who do­nated to our ap­peal.

Heart Week is such an im­por­tant oc­ca­sion for us, not only for fundrais­ing but for show­ing the pub­lic the im­por­tant work that the Heart Foun­da­tion does to pre­vent pre­ma­ture deaths from heart disease.

The do­na­tions re­ceived from Heart Week al­low us to carry on our work with re­search, car­diac re­ha­bil­i­ta­tion, health pro­mo­tion and involvement with schools and early child­hood ed­u­ca­tion cen­tres.

With healthy hearts we can ful­fil a life­time.
