We raised $1785.00! Most of our team of 6 rode 75 km in support of the ride this year. We were treated well as the organization is looking to reach out towards researchers. We were part of a special group of Riding for Research in which Dr. Craig Simmon’s lab also participated. After the ride Aric and Miles were interviewed by the Ride for Heart internal news team which was broadcast inside the VIP and corporate area.
We hope you all join us next year!
