On June 5, Shulman Law Firm rode, walked and ran with your health and well-being in mind. We participated in the 2016 Becel Heart & Stroke Ride for Heart for the first time this year, and we had so much fun that we’re already looking forward to next year’s event.
Having the opportunity to cycle, run or walk along the Gardiner Expressway without any vehicles on the road was a rare thrill for each participant, but the real reward was being able to help more Canadians survive from heart disease.
Heart health can be compromised in more than one way, including being physically inactive, having high blood pressure, and enduring high stress levels, and divorce undoubtedly adds additional stress to your life. We’ve talked previously about the different ways divorce hurts your heart, and we know that about 40 per cent of Canadian marriages end in divorce. Because our clients are sometimes more susceptible to heart disease, joining the Ride for Heart was an easy, yet important choice.
We are very proud to share that our team raised $1,695, and these funds will be used to help the Heart & Stroke Foundation continue investing in life-saving research and treatments, train Canadians in CPR and First Aid, and creative free and accessible eTools to encourage people take control of their heart health.
A big thank you to everyone who participated, and to the Heart & Stroke Foundation for organizing this annual fundraising event!
