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!

Just trying to get my studying in where ever I can!  #ACPstudent #acpschool #paramedicschool #paramedicstudent #paramedictraining Good times at @canadaswonderland today!  Except we all got burnt!Now for some good plant based eats at @copperbranchbrooklin Snapchat? The time has come to say goodbye. Wow 15 yrs! I am so fortunate to have had the opportunity to work for the Region of York Paramedic Services; It truly has been an honour. I have met some amazing people many of which I now call my friends. We have shared some really tragic and horrific events and we've also shared some amazing and beautiful events. One thing is for sure however, I'm so lucky to have had all of you along side me each time to go through them together. I have learned and grown a lot from all of you thank you for all your expertise and guidance over the years; you have helped to shape the person I am today. 
Thank you all! Enjoying this beautiful day as a  family! How are you guys spending it? :) #family #familyfirst #familygoals #familyfitness #familyfitnessfun #bikes #running Bike ride and slushies!
