OUR GOAL HAS BEEN MET FOR CARDIAC CARE IN NIAGARA

In 2007 TAKE IT TO HEART held its inaugural gala to benefit the Heart Investigation Unit of our proposed new hospital.  A pledge of $750,000 was made by the May Court Club of St. Catharines, the Rotary Club of St. Catharines South and Performance Cars for cardiac care in Niagara.  In 2011 the TOUR DU LAC was conceived and joined forces with Take it to Heart to assist in achieving its goal.  The Tour du Lac raised almost $90,000 of this pledge. On March 19, 2014, the plaque dedicating the Cardiac Catherization Unit was unveiled.  It was a proud moment.
The plaque states that "our community, our hospitals and especially Niagara's cardiac patients owe a debt of gratitude to the Take it to Heart committee whose volunteers worked tirelessly in support of cardiac care.  Their outstanding passion and dedication began a tradition whose beat lives on".

Present was Sandra Rothman, Barry Millward, Betsy Partington, Dr. Sven Pallie, Angela Coxe, Ian Forbes, Cathy Henry, Carol Millward and Melody Cunningham.  

TO ALL THE PARTICIPANTS OF THE TOUR DU LAC AND THEIR FAMILY AND FRIENDS WHO PLEDGED SO GENEROUSLY IN THEIR NAMES,  'THANK YOU".
