Welcome to my personal fundraising page.
I am excited to announce that I have registered for the Heart and Stroke Foundation’s 2017 Ride for Heart fundraiser on June 4th. I will run 10 km on the Gardiner Expressway in Toronto to secure donations and raise awareness for The Heart and Stroke Foundation of Canada.
My goal is to raise $1000 which will push forward life-saving research and help more Canadians survive heart disease and stroke.
I've known several familiy members who lost their lives to heart disease and stroke and witnessed even more survivors thanks to on-going research. An estimated 1.6 million Canadians are living with heart disease or the effects of stroke and its up to us to ensure life-saving research continues.
The biggest risk factors for heart disease and stroke are being overweight, high blood pressure and high cholesterol. The best way to prevent this is through exercise and physical activity, which is why I will be running 10 km to support the cause and raise money for much needed research.
Please help me reach my fundraising goal of $1000. Donate today and help spread the word.
