Valentine’s Day is also known as National Donor Day.

The David Foster Foundation has partnered up with WestJet for a touching video in celebration of #HeartMonth which also coincides with Valentine’s Day. The David Foster Foundation is, “incredibly fortunate to have the support of WestJet and to be one of their WestJet Cares for Kids charitable partners. Many of our families are removed from their communities and support systems to be by their child’s side in hospital as they wait for a life-saving organ transplant. Our partnership with WestJet allows us to keep our families together through the gift of flight.”

The touching story highlights relevant conversations about organ donation and taking the time to register. Alyssa Clarke, a 16-year old heart transplant recipient and a family who the foundation assisted, is featured in this special video summarizing her life, post-transplant. It illustrates what she faced during her life-saving heart transplant journey and the people that were there for her.

The Vancouver Island Motorsport Circuit and the GAIN Group, are also proud supporters and partners with the David Foster Foundation. Our organization understands how important it is to bring families into a safe and supportive place while their children are being treated at hospitals far from their homes—a typical challenge that faces Vancouver Island families.

The Circuit is inspired to continue our support with the David Foster Foundation and for these families in need by hosting the next Vancouver Island Motor Gathering.

Together, we hope we can make one small change to make a bigger heartfelt difference!

#HeartMonth.
