Since 2014, we've committed over $8 million to heart health research, equipment and care through our CP Has Heart program. Through sponsorships of the CP Women’s Open, Spruce Meadows and the CFL, we are able to shine a spotlight on local heart charities that make a big impact in their communities. ​

Laura Veloso knows the value of research. Her precious son, Owen, was born with a congenital heart defect. In his short six years, Owen has had half a dozen open-heart surgeries. Without them, he would not have survived.
