When I was 15, my father died. He had a heart attack - all of a sudden, he was gone. At the time, it was the biggest life event I had experienced (and even now, 17 years later is still pretty high on the list).
I want to help raise money for research into Heart Disease and Stroke - and you can help too! This year, the Becel Heart & Stroke Ride for Heart is taking place in Toronto on Sunday June 3. For more information on the Ride for Heart, to register or to donate - visit the website.
Unfortunately, I cannot make it for the ride - but I did just make a donation in my fathers memory - who do you know that has been affected by heart disease and stroke?
