3rd ANNUAL ANNIE'S PACE GLOBAL ADVENTURE - May 28-31, 2021!
ANNIE’S PACE GLOBAL ADVENTURE
May 28-31, 2021
Meet Annie – a Personal Trainer & Group Fitness Instructor for over 25 years, who was diagnosed 6 years ago with an invisible illness; a very rare, incurable and life-threatening heart disease. Annie wouldn’t let it stop her from being as physically active as she safely could.
In 2019 she created ‘Annie’s Pace’ – a Treadmill-Walkathon for heart health, in the hopes of helping others like her. Annie adventured 161km/4days and fundraised $5500 for the Test Your Limits (TYL) Initiative. TYL was founded by her main cardiologist Dr. Heather Ross which has raised just under $4 milion since 2006. “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."
In 2020, ‘Annie’s Pace’ became ‘Annie’s Pace Global Adventure’ (APGA)! An incredible global adventure for all to participate in. While Annie adventured 180km/4days in her studio, participants joined her virtually, via text messaging and phone calls while they adventured in Hong Kong, Greece, Scotland, California, Mississippi, Alberta, and vast locations across Ontario (Toronto, London, Ilderton, Markham, Pickering, Orillia, Peterborough, Lindsay, Bobcaygeon and Omemee). APGA ecstatically fundraised $5375 for TYL and many participants world-wide exercised at the same time with the same goal in mind - HEART HEALTH! The collective distance exercised was 1200km, plus many other hours of FUN activities such as gardening and dancing!! And a 2 year total of $10,875. Talk about awareness of heart health!!
Simply partake in the 3rd Annual APGA 2021 any physical way that you can. The focus of encouragement is to get active indoors/outdoors alone or with friends/family/co-workers/fur babies and TEST YOUR LIMITS for your mind, body and soul for a minimum of 1 hour/day from May 28-31, while Annie Tests Her Limits on a 4 day treadmill-walk. The support given to Annie during her focused walk last year helped to keep her very entertained and motivated. To show Annie support this year go to: 'Annie Smith' on Facebook/Msgr or IG @ alltherightmoves.anniespace - Feel free to message Annie &/or send videos of your adventures, which she will happily post on social media while she's walking.
One woman’s vision became a reality.
Annie's intention this year is to raise another $5000, to help Dr. Ross get closer to reaching $1M for the Test Your Limits Initiative!! Please help Annie by participating in APGA for your heart health, signing up for organ donation, donating (if you can) any amount, recruiting others and share, share, share, her message of hope and inspiration!
