Family and Friends,
I need your help today. This year will be my 6th straight Ride for Heart, riding 75km with Team RBC and raising money to help people in Canada enjoy more moments with the people they love.
Did you know that even with all the work that we’ve done, every 5 minutes a person in Canada dies from heart disease and stroke? We must keep on funding breakthroughs to change that.
I continue to train year round by commuting to work every day.
I’ve set a very big fundraising goal to exceed the $1890 that I raised last year (with your support). Here is my year over year fundraising total:
2015 = $1100
2016 = $1200
2017 = $1345
2018 = $1740
2019 = $1890
Please help me by making a donation today! It’s fast, secure and easy. Just click on the link below to access my personal fundraising page.
For every $1 raised, 56 cents funds life-saving research, advocacy and health promotion, 41 cents is invested in fundraising and engaging Canadians in healthy activities and 3 cents goes to administrative costs.
Last year over 400 participants raised funds for Team RBC and raised a collective $121,259.
With our support, Heart & Stroke can continue to:
• Empower people in Canada to make positive changes and prevent disease
• Save lives at the moment a health emergency strikes
• Promote recovery, where and when it’s needed
Thank you so much for your support. Every little bit helps people in Canada live longer, fuller lives.
If you are interested in participating in the event (riding 25km / 50km / 75km or Running 5k / 10k), the fundraising minimum is only $100. RBC will pay your registration fee if you join Team RBC (ask me for the promo code). If you raise $150, you will be eligible for Team RBC branded kit (cycling gloves last year - may be something different this year).
