Fraser Valley Health Care Foundation holds annual event on Feb. 22

Registration is now underway for the third annual Step Up 4 Cardiac Health fundraiser for the Fraser Valley Health Care Foundation (FVHCF).

The event takes place Saturday, Feb. 22 at Abbotsford Centre. Check-in is at 9 a.m, 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 or of the concourse.

Each lap on the stairs takes approximately seven minutes to complete. The record for the most laps last year was 24 on the stairs and 31 around the concourse.

Participants collect pledges, with the proceeds going towards cardiac health at Abbotsford Regional Hospital (AHR).

Visit or call 1-877-661-0314 to register or donate, or for more information.

The FVHCF continues to fund vital equipment and programs for ARH.

All funds raised in Abbotsford support Abbotsford.
