Every 7 minutes someone dies from heart disease & stroke in Canada. Statistics show that heart disease and stroke is responsible for a staggering 1 in 3 Canadian deaths each year. As with many families, we all have been directly or indirectly affected by this disease inflicted on a family member or friend. Our family felt the impact this past November when my brother passed away suddenly of a heart attack as a result of heart disease. Your support will help the Heart and Stroke Foundation to achieve its 2020 goal of reducing Canadians’ rate of death from heart disease and stroke by 25%. Your donation will directly improve the lives of Canadians through preventing disease, saving lives and promoting recovery.
For over 20 years I have supported this great cause and once again this year I will be participating in the Ride for Heart on Sunday, June 4, 2017 and aiming to cycle 50km to raise funds for this cause. I will be cycling with the RBC Team to help raise funds towards our Team Goal of $100,000. Last year RBC won the first place Platinum Wheel Award as the top overall fundraising team and first place in the financial category industry challenge.
Thank you and I really appreciate your support in this worthy cause.
