The Heart and Stroke Foundation of Ontario has launched an exciting
initiative designed to help increase the level of physical activity in
elementary schools. With 26% of Canadian children aged 2 to 17 years
overweight or obese, we need to act now to help kids get on track to a
healthy weight. The Heart and Stroke Foundation of Ontario is
eager to work more closely with communities around this important
issue. As such, the Foundation has established the Community
Advocacy Fund, which offers grants to community and school groups that
are seeking support for their advocacy efforts on physical activity.
Grants are available for up to $2000, $5000, and $25,000.

The first deadline for the Community Advocacy Fund is November 1, 2006.
The second deadline will be May 1, 2007. For more information, call
