As with virtually all other events, the 2020 Ride for Heart has gone virtual too! And while our team is disappointed, we are each committed to riding our own course on Sunday, June 7th.
This year funding for research is more critical than ever. People living with heart disease and stroke are at an increased risk of becoming very ill and dying if they contract COVID-19, and emerging data confirms the virus can damage an otherwise healthy heart and impact the brain. Like our captain Paul, there are more than 1.6 million Canadians living with the effect of heart disease or stroke and we don't want the life of even one more Canadian to be undermined. We are therefore appealing to you to once again make a donation to the Heart and Stroke Foundation.
We thank you from the bottom of our hearts. Your support means the world to us.
Be well and stay safe.
Paul and team
