Once again, Cassie, Julie and I are riding in the Heart and Stroke Ride for Heart in Toronto on June 4, 2017. We have previously completed the ride in 2013, 2014 and 2016. This Heart and Stroke Foundation is a cause that we feel strong in our support because it has affected our families and those close to us. For 2017, we're thinking about increasing our distance from 25 to 50 km! We'll need some training to get that distance, but we're hoping we can ride 50 this year.
We've set an ambitious goal of raising $2000, and 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.
Steve, Julie and Cassie
