Ride from the Heart - Campaign Update
Post Date:September 17, 2019
The 50+ Ride From the Heart was able to raise $1,881 this year on behalf of Ava Cooper for the American Heart Association!
On my birthday (8/8/19), I rode over 50 miles on the The Ohio and Erie Canal Towpath Trail, posting on social media along the way with progress updates and highlights of different points of interest along the path.
This year was the 2nd year for this fundraiser for the American Heart Association. In 2018, I started this fundraising campaign to commemorate the anniversary of my life-saving surgery, as well as to raise awareness about Heart Disease. On my 51st birthday I rode 51 miles, inviting people to "sponsor my ride" with a donation to the American Heart Association, which resulted in a total of $1,650 in donations.
Thank you to everyone who sponsored me for this year's Heart Ride - I can't wait to see how much more money we can raise in the coming years!
