Why am I so Passionate about this cause?
I am fundraising for the Lipoprotein(a) Foundation. On March 30th, 2019 I will ride 63 miles for the 63 Million American families currently living with or at risk for cardiovascular disease and death due to high Lp(a). That's a mile for every million! www.TESTLpa.org
Help us Prevent a Disability or Family Tradegy
Join me in raising funds for urgent research required to help us fulfill our mission of preventing cardiovascular events and death due to high Lp(a) for 1 in 5 families globally. My father died at 50, I had a widow-maker heart attack at 39 and my brother had a heart attack and triple by-pass at 45, plus many of my other family members have been impacted! Let's prevent this from happening to your loved one or family member...
High Lp(a) is a sticky, fatty, protein in your blood that causes plaque to build-up in your arteries and blood clots, it's genetic! If you have high levels of Lp(a) you have at least a 60% increased risk of developing cardiovascular disease. Instead of the BRCA genes for breast cancer, we have the LPA genes for heart disease, stroke, PVD, and aortic stenosis.
Every amount helps, thank you for your gift of a donation to help 20% of the global population avoid the tragic loss of a family member as I and many more have suffered!
This ride is dedicated to my father and all the other families who have suffered the tragic loss of a family member.
We run on love and donations, all donations will go to our programs of Awareness, Advocacy, Support and Research for high Lp(a).
