March of Dimes Canada Month
January 17, 2018 | By Urban Poling
It’s the March of Dimes Canada Month and We’re Proud to be a part of it!
January is March of Dimes Canada Month. Get involved in their annual Community Canvass Campaign by signing up as an online canvasser at marchofdimes.ca/communitycanvass, or by purchasing a set of ACTIVATOR poles on-line during the month of January. Over 90% of the money raised will go towards their Stroke Recovery Canada program, which supports stroke survivors and caregivers.
Walking with poles can help reduce fatigue during and after cancer treatment and has proven beneficial to those in breast cancer rehab. To read more about the research that supports the benefits of Nordic walking for cancer patients, visit the Your Health section of our website.
