It's Big - Really BIG!

Today I'm going to ask you for something.  I have a really hard time asking people for a favour, but in this case it's for a such a good cause that I just have to.


On April 28th I'll be riding in an event called The Big Bike in Aurora, Ontario to raise money for the Heart & Stroke Foundation.  Along with 29 other people I will be riding on a specially-designed bike that, along with raising much needed money for research and support, is going to be pretty funny to watch. 


Here are some pictures from previous years:





 

Tell me that doesn't look like a heckuva lot of fun!

On a serious note, the goal this year is to raise $7 million.  Any little bit that you can donate helps.  Heart disease & stroke is the #1 killer of women, causing 1 in 3 deaths each year. More women die of heart disease than all forms of cancer combined (source: Heart & Stroke Foundation of Canada and American Heart Association).

If you would be interested in sponsoring me for this event, you can click on the link below and it will take you directly to my sponsor page.  Donations can be made by credit card (secure site) and a tax receipt will be issued if you need one.  Also, if you live in an area that is holding one of these events and would like to participate, go to http://www.bigbike.ca/ and register. Thank you in advance!
