Trimac donates $25,000 to Heart & Stroke: Advancing research and saving lives
Published on July 18, 2023
Calgary, Alberta—In support of the Heart & Stroke Foundation’s invaluable work in heart disease and stroke research, education and advocacy, Trimac generously donated $25,000 to the non-profit organization. This contribution reflects Trimac’s dedication to making a meaningful difference in communities we serve and aligns with Heart & Stroke’s mission to create a healthcare system where no person is left behind.
The partnership between Heart & Stroke and Trimac flourished during the Ride For Heart fundraising initiative held by the non-profit organization in June. As part of their collaboration, they also organized an employee education and engagement session on Heart & Brain Health. Through this interaction, Trimac had the opportunity to gain insights into the critical areas of research and advocacy that Heart & Stroke focuses on.
Stroke, being the fourth leading cause of death in Canada and a leading cause of adult disability, demands immediate attention and awareness. Heart & Stroke’s FAST mnemonic has proven to be an effective tool in recognizing the onset of a stroke and seeking emergency care promptly, potentially saving lives and improving outcomes.
Trimac’s donation to the Heart & Stroke Foundation is a significant step towards advancing life-saving research and strengthening advocacy efforts.
