Unexpectedly last January 29th, 2016, my father passed away from a sudden heart attack. So for the second year, my family, friends, and I are running the Heart&Stroke Ride for Heart in his honor and are working hard to raise money for heart and stroke research. Please help me reach my fundraising goal by making a donation. Last year, I was able to raise over $1500, and this year I am confident that with your help, I will hit and hopefully surpass that amount so we can reach our overall team goal of $5,000!
We don’t believe our genes should be our destiny, and do not want to lose ANY MORE loved ones to cardiovascular disease. Your donation will push forward life-saving research like this and more and fund incredible breakthroughs to create more survivors of heart disease and stroke!
It was always apparent that family history played a role in our risk factors for heart disease and stroke. But despite significant advances, we only know 20-30% of the genes involved.
With the right funding, doctors predict they could unlock the genetic puzzle behind cardiovascular disease within as little as 5 years.
Please help us with our fundraising goal and make a donation today.
