So.... I was planning to do my first Half-Ironman on May31, and so was not going to be able to participate in the Ride For Heart this year. But then, thanks to Covid-19, my triathlon was cancelled and the Ride went virtual. So, although I will not get to ride on the DVP and Gardiner, I can still do a bike ride and collect donations for Heart and Stroke. Heart disease does not stop because of a pesky little virus! I am committing to do a solo bike ride of 75 km, on or about the original date of June 7 (weather dependent - I won't have to ride in the rain this year!)
Heart disease has had a big effect on my life: my father died at age 60 from a stroke, and my mother-in-law lived for 15 years with the disablilites caused by a stroke. I feel anything we can do to help with research into stroke and heart disease is important.
Please help me with my fundraising goal and make a donation today. But I know times are tough so I completely understand if you can't contribute this year. Thanks for all your support in years past, and stay safe!
