Step Up 4 Cardiac Health

Event at Abbotsford Regional Hospital on Jan. 13

The Fraser Valley Health Care Foundation holds its first Step Up 4 Cardiac Health stair-climbing event on Saturday, Jan. 13.

Check-in is at 9 a.m. at Abbotsford Regional Hospital, with the climb starting at 9:30 a.m.

The event involves participants doing as many “laps” as they can of the 596-step course. Each lap takes approximately seven minutes to complete, and can be done as a fun run or obstacle-style race.

Participants collect pledges, with the proceeds going towards cardiac health at the hospital.

Registration can be done online at fvhcf.ca.
