Dear family & friends,
Please help me make a difference by supporting my "virtual" 5KM walk in this year’s Manulife Heart & Stroke Virtual Ride for Heart! Instead of completing my walk on the Gardiner Expressway as in past years, I'll do so in my own neighbourhood. I need your help today so that I can help others. Heart disease and strokes have affected several members of my family; taking the lives of some and sparing the lives of others.
Your support is so important because people living with heart disease and stroke face new risks due to COVID-19. They can suffer medical complications if infected with COVID-19, and people with pre-existing heart conditions are particularly vulnerable and face a higher risk of dying from COVID-19. Donations help to provide current and credible information from medical experts so that people living with heart disease and stroke can stay healthy, safe and get the peer support they need. Every five minutes, someone in Canada dies from a heart condition, stroke, or vascular cognitive impairment. That is why it is critical to continue funding breakthroughs to make that statistic a thing of the past.
Thank you so much for helping me make a difference - from a distance. Every little bit helps people in Canada live longer, fuller lives. It’s fast, easy, and secure!
