My and Sara's families have both been affected by Heart disease and stroke.
Every 7 minutes someone dies from heart disease and stroke in Canada. That's why I am fundraising for the Becel Heart&Stroke Ride for Heart on Sunday, June 5, 2016. I have been training through the Winter (including a daily commute to / from downtown) and plan to do the 75km route for a second year. I have set a goal to exceed the $1200 in donations that I raised last year for this great cause.
Your donation will directly improve the lives of Canadians through preventing disease, saving lives and promoting recovery.
In 2014, the Heart and Stroke Foundation invested close to $34 million in life-saving research, supporting nearly 1,000 researchers in medical institutes, universities, hospitals and communities across the country. We also invested more than $55 million in advocacy and health promotion programs.
