FACT:

 More than 866,000 North Americans die each year from heart disease and stroke - one every seven minutes

 1 in every 4 deaths is related to heart disease

  About 47% of sudden cardiac deaths occur outside a hospital. This suggests that many people with heart disease don't act on early warning signs

As one of the top training companies we are pleased to give back and raise funds to support researchers who are working on breakthrough treatments that save lives and improves survivor recovery.

For the third year in a row on May 31st, 2015 the TrainingFolks team will be riding down the Gardiner Expressway and Don Valley Parkway in Toronto along with over 14,000 other riders to create more survivors.

 More than 8,000 life-saving automated external defibrillators have been distributed to increase someone's chance of surviving cardiac arrest

 The Heart and Stoke Foundation funded the development of life-saving treatments that created 165,000 survivors last year
