Early on in the COVID-19 pandemic, our family made a commitment to stay active and make healthy choices while in quarantine. So, when the Manulife Heart & Stroke Ride for Heart went virtual, I saw this as the perfect event to take part in! We will be biking and walking along the beautiful St. Lawrence River in June and raising funds for a cause that is close to our hearts.
We now know that people living with heart disease and stroke are at an increased risk of becoming very ill and dying if they contract COVID-19, and we want to help. Emerging data confirms the virus can damage an otherwise healthy heart and impact the brain. Funding for research is more critical than ever.
You can help those at greater risk due to COVID-19 and your donation will help fund life-saving research breakthroughs. Help us fund this important work!
Thank you for your support!
