OUR CHARITY

The University Hospital Foundation was created in 1962 by an act in the Alberta legislature. In the decades since, we have evolved into one of the most successful hospital fundraising organizations in Canada. We raise funds to advance patient care and innovation at the University of Alberta Hospital, the Mazankowski Alberta Heart Institute and the Kaye Edmonton Clinic.

Funds raised by the Edmonton Heartbeat Run will support the Maz Innovation Fund, ensuring the Mazankowski Alberta Heart Institute remains a world-class cardiac centre for years to come. Support of this fund will lead to the advancement of clinical programs, quality improvement, the purchase of new equipment, and research, in order to support developments in cardiac care, such as minimally invasive approaches.

This fund has already supported initiatives like:

– Surgical procedure to remove blood clots blocking the arteries carrying blood to the lungs, improving oxygen levels – one of only two programs in Canada

– Virtual cardiac rehabilitation for patients unable to attend in-person programs

– After a successful pilot program, proving the safety and effectiveness of Ev-Vivo equipment to essentially keep lungs ‘alive’ outside the body, this technology will begin to be used with patients.

THE VIRTUAL RUN

Can’t make the in-person event?  Still leery of large gatherings?  No Problem!
You can participate in our virtual run.  We will have a finisher medal and tshirt (if you meet our cutoff deadlines) for you.

You can participate in the virtual event from the time you register up to race day.  

Items will be made available for local pickup after the event. Purchase shipping to have the items sent to you!
