TrainingFolks: Together We Ride!

On June 1st 2014, TrainingFolks came together to show their support for the Becel Heart and Stroke Foundation.

 

On a beautiful Saturday morning, the TrainingFolks team rode down the Gardiner Expressway and Don Valley Parkway in Toronto with 14,000 other riders for one unified mission – to create more survivors!

 

TrainingFolks exceeded last year’s earnings by raising over $5,400!

 

The proceeds will provide the tools, resources, and initiatives to reduce the controllable risk factors of heart disease and stroke.  Since 9 in 10 people have risk factors, the support reaches far and wide.

 

The Becel Heart and Stoke Foundation:

 

  • Empowers people to make positive changes and prevent disease

  • Save lives at the moment a health emergency strikes

  • Promote recovery, where and when it’s needed

 

Goals:

 

  • By 2020, significantly improve the health by decreasing their risk factors for heart disease and stroke by 10%

  • By 2020, reduce Canadian’s rate of death from and heart disease and stroke by 25%
