Martin von Holst hosted Kelowna’s Wendy Wright, of the Heart & Stroke Foundation.  Globally, heart disease is the #1 killer of women.  In Canada, one life is taken every seven minutes.  The Heart & Stroke Foundation has invested heavily in research, significantly reducing the heart disease and stroke death rate.  Their mandate is to prevent disease, save lives and support recovery.  They help place automated external defibrillators (AED’s) wherever there are crowds of people, and in workplaces, etc.  Wendy was able to smooth-talk Martin into organizing our club’s participation in a May 11th “Big Bike” ride, to support their work.  See www.bigbike.ca  “Life.  We don’t want you to miss it.” ™
