The Heart Foundation of Jamaica recently launched its 39th annual Run for Your Heart event, which received overwhelming support from board members, schools, companies and government officials.

The Run For Your Heart event will be held on Sunday, November 27 at the National Stadium, and is part of the Heart Foundation's drive to raise funds towards its islandwide screening programme, and purchase of medical supplies and equipment, which will enable the foundation to continue to offer services at subsidised rates.

For more than 45 years, the primary function of the Heart Foundation of Jamaica has been the promotion of heart health care throughout Jamaica. Its services include a mobile cardiac screening programme, advanced cardiac tests, pharmaceutical service, hypertension and in-house clinics, nutritional counselling and home-visiting service.
