I don’t believe our genes should be our destiny, and that’s why I am fundraising for the 2017 Ride for Heart on June 4th. 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!
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.
Personally, I am riding in memory of both family and friends I have lost to heart attacks and stroke. Every one of these people died much younger than they should have and it is with each of them in mind that I participate in this evet.
Please help me with my fundraising goal and make a donation today.
