The enthusiastic TrainingFolks team joined over 20 000 riders, walkers and volunteers at the 29th Becel Heart&Stroke Ride for Heart event this past Sunday.

Choosing two wheels over the traditional four, the team took to the traffic-free Gardiner and Don Valley Parkway riding distances of 25-75 km in efforts to raise a team goal of $6,000 this year.

“I am very proud that our team participated for a fourth consecutive year and that we were able to surpass our goal of $6,000” said Saqib Hassan, President, TrainingFolks. “It was a collaborative effort amongst all of our riders and our generous supporters.”

Heart disease continues to be the leading cause of death for both men and women, with someone dying every 7 minutes from heart and disease and stroke.  The funds collected are invested in life-saving heart disease and stroke research, supporting almost 1,000 researchers across Canada as well as in training Canadians in CPR and to create survivors with 165,000 reported in 2015 alone.
