Being a Registered Nurse on a Cardiac Stroke Unit at Riverview Medical Center, I see how many lives are affected each day by heart disease and stroke. When not at work, I am an active member at Mega Cycle in Shrewsbury, NJ. I cycle daily to promote my own physical and mental wellness. I have decided to ride with Cycle Nation on April 7th in order to make an impact in my community. I want to spread awareness and support the American Heart Association and American Stroke Association in their efforts to raise money to support critical heart and stroke research. I want to be an advocate and empower people in my community to cycle to promote brain and heart health.
Thank you in advance for supporting me with a donation today. Together, we have the power to stop the cycle of stroke and heart disease!
