The 2nd Annual Annie's Pace Global Adventure - May 22-25, 2020!
WELCOME TO THE 2ND ANNUAL ANNIE'S PACE, now a global adventure!
A Global Adventure for all abilities to participate in - walk/wheel/run/blade/bike as many km in 1-4 days as you can. Test Your Limits physically and mentally while Annie treadmill-walks 120km in four days in her studio. “The funds raised will be for support of heart disease and heart failure research. 100% of your support will go directly towards making research in heart failure and transplantation possible." www.testyourlimits.ca
Annie’s Pace was created in May 2019, four years after Annie's first heart surgery, fourteen months after her second heart surgery and eight months after a relapse of Cardiac Sarcoidosis. A very rare, incurable, life-threatening, inflammation of the heart. Annie lives with this invisible illness and it is her mission that people know what that looks like and why this cause is so important to her. That is why Annie chose the Test Your Limits Initiative.
As a personal trainer and fitness instructor for over twenty years, it was very hard to be told ‘you have a very sick heart and you are limited to the types and quantity of exercises that you can do from now on. You can walk.’ So with the relapse of Cardiac Sarcoidosis, Annie took Dr. Ross’ prescription for walking like she takes up anything related to fitness …. hard core. Annie has walked over 4700KM in sixteen months; 400km further than Newfoundland to the Yukon.
Last year Annie surpassed her goals and raised $5560 and walked 161km in four days (on a treadmill in her studio). This year Annie's vision has progressed incredibly from one woman walking alone for four days, to people all across the globe 'Partaking in a Global Adventure' for Annie's Pace/TYL. They are spreading her message of hope and inspiration. Annie has friends 'adventuring' in Hong Kong, Scotland, Greece, Ilderton, ON, Toronto, Pickering, Orillia, Peterborough, Bobcaygeon, Lindsay and Omemee, ON so far. Annie needs your help in reaching her goal of $500 for 2020, and would appreciate your help in doing this. Please share her message to everyone you know, take some time during May 22-25 to take care of yourself physically by participating anyway that you can, make a donation to TYL (just click donate on this page) and together let's see how many people we can touch with her message!
