Run Walk Ride with me at the @HSFRide this year & let’s #CreateSurvivors together!

Did you know:

Heart disease and stroke kill one Canadian every 7 minutes, making it a leading cause of death and disability in Canada.  

Today, more than 90 per cent of Canadians who have a heart attack and more than 80 per cent who have a stroke and make it to hospital will survive. Last year, the Heart and Stroke Foundation helped create 165,000 survivors.

As a Paramedic I, far to often, see the devastating effects of these two conditions on my patients and their families.  So when I was asked to be an ambassador for the all new run component of the Becel Heart and Stroke Ride for Heart I agreed without hesitation.

This year they have a goal to raise $6.8million.  Funds rasied will support world class research as well as health education and advocacy to help the Foundation meet its mission to prevent disease, save lives and promote recovery from heart disease and stroke.  I plan on doing everything I can to help them meet that goal!  But I need your help by either joining me or donating!

ps. if you are registering for the run use the discount code AMB05 for $10 off; you’re welcome 🙂

If you’d like to participate with me, then free up your calendar on June 5th for this unique opportunity to ride, run or walk on a traffic-free Gardiner and DVP, help create more survivors from heart disease and stroke.  Join 15,000 cyclists and ride 25, 50 or 75km traffic-free on the Gardiner and Don Valley Parkway. Or participate in our new 5km/10km Run or 5km Walk. It’s a whole new way to experience the magic of this landmark Toronto event.

Your selfie game will be strong with a backdrop like this!

By supporting the Ride you will be helping to create more survivors.  Over the past 60 years, with the Foundation’s help, the death rate from heart disease and stroke has declined by more than 75 per cent, with nearly 40 per cent of this decrease occurring in the past decade.

By deciding to participate and train for this event you will also be taking charge of your own health and help to prevent a cardiac event or stroke from occurring to yourself!  Lack of physical activity is a risk factor for heart disease and stroke, and cycling/running/walking is a great example of a physical activity that is fun and easy to do.   It is recommended that Canadians get 150 minutes of moderate- to vigorous-physical activity each week so get signed up and start training!  Here are some other videos to help motivate you!

Happy birthday to this smart, talented, beautiful girl today. ❤️❤️❤️ @kayleigh.dancer011
Moved a couple of weights around the other day. Man it’s hard to get my workout and running desire back again! I did get the chance to try out some @underarmourca RUSH gear that was sent to me! This shirt and tights felt amazing to put on and did not impact my range of motion at all. I could def feel the energy and heat being reflected back to me while I was working out. I did feel muscle soreness for a few days after but I attribute that to my lack of consistency more than anything! The fabric in this line is infused with minerals to reflect energy back into the body and improve performance similar to an infrared sauna. The science behind this says the minerals absorb the body’s heat and converts it into infrared energy that is re-emitted back into the body. This then increases localized circulation which results in improved performance and recovery. Check out what others are saying and search up the hashtag #UARush! I love it and will now be exclusively using this for all my workouts and running! Now if I can just work on my motivation and consistency and will to get out! Lol. I’m sure I’m not alone with this? Have any of you had this problem?
Nothing beats the feeling of brand new @enertorglobal comfort insoles in my work boots! #insoles #teamenertor #foothealth

I did it for the kids, for the younger siblings and for the fans. But they still gifted me the jersey anyways! My heart goes out to this team! I haven’t felt more connected to a team than this year!! Thank you for giving me the chance to make these memories and for the opportunity to create these memories for your amazing kids! I heard from someone during the season that the days I wasn’t able to make it to a game to suit up the kids would say “awww man there’s no Forecheck today??? Now we’re gonna lose!!!” That stuck with me and I felt awful every time I couldn’t be there. Made putting in the suit worth it! Based on their record this year the def didn’t need me there to win game that’s for sure!! Already dreaming of next season! 💙💙💙 #hockeydad #hockeymascot #hockey #IDidItForTheKids #minoratomhockey #2009Falcons
