This year I am participating in the Heart&Stroke Big Bike to raise funds for the Heart and Stroke Foundation.

Heart disease and stroke take 1 in 3 Canadians before their time. Together, we can help improve this statistic.

Please help me reach my fundraising goal by sponsoring me online. Click on the link below to make a secure online credit card donation.

The donations we collect will help us to continue to fund life-giving research so that all Canadians can live longer, fuller, lives.

Thank you for your support!

P.S. Here is an interesting article I came across on the Heart and Stroke website about how this is a big threat to women…even more of a threat than breast cancer.

Noel Bairey Merz: The single biggest health threat women face (16min long)

Surprising, but true: More women now die of heart disease than men, yet cardiovascular research has long focused on men. Pioneering doctor C. Noel Bairey Merz shares what we know and don’t know about women’s heart health — including the remarkably different symptoms women present during a heart attack (and why they’re often missed).
