OPS 2016 team, 70 team members together with MTO Deputy Minister Carol Layton and Secretory of Cabinet Office Steve Orsini and won the Silver Wheel Award presented by Heart and Stroke Foundation by raised $30,000. This year, together with the head of OPS, Steve Orsini, and more than 50 team members, we are having a team fund raising goal as $39,000
We don’t believe our genes should be our destiny, and that’s why our team is fundraising for the 2017 Ride for Heart on June 4th. 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 me with my fundraising goal and make a donation today.
Team Captain: Amy Wang (MGCS), Iain Shao(TBS), Catalina Trevizan(MOHLTC)
