I’ve lived here for the past few years. Edmonton is an amazing, incredible city and I wanted to give back to the community. I feel physical and mental health are extremely important, so I decided to get involved with the Heart and Stroke Foundation. My father taught me to always give back to your community; he said it was a crime not to! Volunteering gives the public a sense of responsibility and selflessness. That good things and deeds are not always associated with financial reward and that helping make society a better place is the best kind of reward. It makes us better as people that look out for each other; it makes Canada a family.
