Welcome to my Triple Crown for Heart fundraising page!

On July 20th, I will be returning to Cypress Mountain to tackle the climb by bike in the annual Triple Crown for Heart charity ride. This will be my 4th time back to Cypress (and not on my electric bike) since the day I went unconscious on this climb and discovered I had a genetic heart disease (ARVC). Living with a progressive heart disease is a daily reminder for me that life is precious. I not only want to make the most of my time on this earth, but I also want to help others live their best lives. 

The money raised from this event goes to both the BC Children's Hospital Heart Unit and the Children's Heart Network to send kids to Camp Zajac. No, it won't help cure their disease but it will help make their time in the hospital, and living with the disease, a bit more tolerable.

I would be so grateful for your sponsorship. If you want to join me on the climb, I will be riding up ONLY one mountain (Cypress), starting my climb at 11am so I can join in the celebration at the top. Hopefully, I will see you there!

Donations of $20 or more will receive a charitable donation tax receipt at the end of the year. 

Thanks for your consideration of support for this most worthy cause!
