The Ride for Heart is a charity event that helps raise money for the Heart and Stroke foundation. Heart disease and stroke is responsible for 1 in 3 Canadian deaths every year. In fact, 15 Torontonians will be hospitalized every day this year, making heart disease and stroke the leading causes of death in Ontario. We need to change these statistics. Besides this hitting pretty close to home as I’ve had 2 uncles who suffered from stroke in the past 10 years and a co-worker of mine suffered a cardiac incident this year, for me it’s also a great way to combine doing something I truly enjoy while giving back to the community. Last year was the first time I did this event and had a fantastic time riding with friends and raising money. I started a little late last year but still raised almost $1000 due to some really generous contributors. This year, I’m trying to be more ambitious and triple that amount. The ride takes place on June 7 and I intend to ride 50KM for this cause.
