Hello, and welcome to my fundraising page!
When it comes to heart disease and stroke, our genes should not be our destiny. As a (recreational, amateur) runner, I have been fortunate to run in various events including two marathons. However, heart disease and stroke are no stranger to me. It has always been apparent that family history plays a role, and I have seen the effects of heart disease and stroke in my very own extended family.
That’s why I’m fundraising and (going outside my comfort zone by) biking 25KM for the 2020 Manulife Heart & Stroke Ride for Heart on June 7. Your donation will help fund life-saving research breakthroughs, resulting in more moments with those we love. Despite significant advances, 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 of $1,000.00! To make it easier, you can donate online right here on this page (look to the right!).
