Every 7 minutes someone dies from heart disease and stroke in Canada. Unfortunately, my beloved Grandmother was one of these people. She suffered from multiple mini strokes and one fatal heart attack that took her from us.
Grandma Otilda was always a strong supporter of the Heart and Stroke and canvassed door to door for the Foundation many times throughout the years. I like to think that I am following in her footsteps.
Participating in the Ride for Heart makes me feel like I'm doing this not only for her, but alongside her. This Ride is for my Grandma. This will be my 6th year riding, and 4th time leading our corporate team.
Your support will help the Heart and Stroke Foundation achieve its 2020 goal of reducing Canadians’ rate of death from heart disease and stroke by 25%. That's why I am fundraising for the Heart&Stroke Ride for Heart on Sunday, June 3, 2018. Your donation will directly improve the lives of Canadians through preventing disease, saving lives and promoting recovery.
Any support is appreciated!
