You Showed Your Heart
Thank you to everyone who joined the University Hospital Foundation in celebration of Heart Month and contributed to helping us crush our fundraising goals in support of cardiac care at the Mazankowski Alberta Heart Institute (Maz).
Heart Month is about love, community, and gratitude coming together in support of cardiac care at the Mazankowski Alberta Heart Institute and you did by tuning in to up! 99.3 on Heart Pledge Day, participating in the Maz Move-A-Thon, sharing your story, or hosting a champion event to raise funds.
Funds raised in February 2022 will ensure doctors at the Maz will continue to have the best cardiac monitoring equipment at their fingertips by helping to purchase Hemodynamic cardiac monitoring systems.
Heart Pledge Day
Since 2010, the University Hospital Foundation has partnered with a local radio station to raise critical funds that support the most advanced equipment, technology, and work environments in the world, right here at home. Over the course of 12 hours, listeners learn about the important, cutting-edge work done at the Maz and hear life-changing stories of patients from Alberta and across Canada.
