On Wednesday, September 12th, Yorkville sponsored the University of Ottawa Heart Institute's First Annual Heart and Sole: Walk, Talk, Taste & Awe. This event, supporting the establishment of the Canadian Women's Heart Health Centre at the University of Ottawa Heart Institute, integrated a walk along the lovely Marshes Golf Course, education on women's heart health, a delicious sampler feast and a spectacular fireworks extravaganza.
The University of Ottawa Heart Institute Foundation is building a $100 million endowment fund for cardiovascular research—one of the largest of its kind—for the Institute. The endowment will allow the Heart Institute to remain at the forefront of cardiovascular research and contribute to the advancement of patient care here and around the world.
