I just recently learned about this ride supporting American Heart Association. I knew the minute I saw it, that this is something I want to participate in. High blood pressure, heart attack and stroke have and continue to affect my family. When I ride I will recall the time my family gathered at the hospital with my grandma, all scared to death, and she said "well it's great to have all my family together, but I'd rather not be here," and her wanting to stay awake to watch the camera going through to check her heart for blocks. We were all lucky that there is a great heart hospital not too far away. I'm supporting this cause so that hopefully other people get to bring their loved ones home safe and sound after seeing knowledgeable heart doctors, like I did. Without continuing research, doctors won't be able to stay on top of these issues.
Thank you for supporting American Heart Association. Your contribution is greatly appreciated.
