Why I am participating in the first-ever Manulife Heart & Stroke Virtual Ride for Heart this weekend - to honour all those in our family and friends who have been touched by heart disease and stroke:
- my mom
- my dad
- my aunt
- my sister's family
- my cousin's family
This year, 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.
Funding for research is more critical than ever.
Help me fund this important research due to COVID-19 and meet my fundraising goal.
Thank you, Cheryl
