My Dad had a close call last year, which shook the whole family. He's made a good recovery from the triple bypass and we are grateful for his new lease on life. So I'll be hitting the bike again for the 2020 Manulife Heart & Stroke Ride for Heart on June 7th to honour my dad's recovery and the hard work of all the health care professionals that supported him. Last year's ride inspired me to push my fitness goals, so I'm double the distance of my 2020 ride. Your donation will help fund life-saving research breakthroughs and will give us more moments with those we love.
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 five years.
Help me fund this important research and meet my fundraising goal.
