I don’t believe our genes should be our destiny, and that’s why I am fundraising for the 2019 Ride for Heart on June 2nd.Your donation will push forward life-saving research like this and more and fund incredible breakthroughs to create more survivors of heart disease and stroke!
This will be the fourth year in a row that I ride in honour of my dear friend Joe who passed away from a heart attack much too soon in his life as well as family members who have either passed or been affected by this disease.
It was always apparent that family history played a role in our risk factors for heart disease and stroke. But despite significant advances, we only know 20-30% of the genes involved.
With the right funding, doctors predict they could unlock the genetic puzzle behind cardiovascular disease within as little as 5 years.
Please help me with my fundraising goal and make a donation today.
