I think everyone knows that it's important to take care of your heart, but I'm riding because I want people to know WHY it's important.
My father is sick because his heart doesn't work properly. I learned through him that, when your heart isn't working properly, life gets difficult. Your heart can't pump the blood around your body, which means your systems can't work properly. Your lungs fill with water because your excretory system can't get the fluids out. You are tired all of the time because your brain doesn't get all of the oxygen it needs. Life is tiring.
All of the money raised through Big Bike will go to the Heart and Stroke Foundation, where they’ll use it to develop life-saving treatments that bring hope to heart disease and stroke patients. They support heart and stroke patients in recovery to get them home safe and sound. They also create programs to educate people of all ages on heart health. For me, that is my focus: I think it's really, really important to know how important it is to look after your health, and if it means giving money to create educational programs for children and adults, then that is what I will work towards.
Please help me reach my fundraising goal by making a donation today.
It's only with your help that we can continue to fund this vital research, and return more survivors home to their loved ones.
Thank you so much for your support.
