Spruce Meadows

Libin Cardiovascular Institute of Alberta​The 10 clear rounds by riders in the 2017 Canadian Pacific (CP) International means $100,000 for the Libin Cardiovascular Institute of Alberta

Philipp Weishaupt and LB Convall jumped two clear rounds to win the $3 million CP International, the final event of Masters week and the conclusion to Spruce Meadows' 42nd season.

"We are very grateful to CP for their ongoing support of cardiovascular research in our community," says Dr. Todd Anderson, Director, Libin Cardiovascular Institute of Alberta. "Proceeds from the Spruce Meadows Masters event will be used to support a public policy symposium on healthy eating and to support Libin researchers working in the area of cardiovascular health promotion."
