In spring 2021 Leo will leave all creature comforts behind and set out on expedition to attain the highest summit on the planet. All in support of Women's Heart Health Research and the Heart and Stroke Foundation.
Leo believes that the Heart and Stroke Foundation of Canada is supporting Global Heart Health and has chosen to climb for this reason. You can support Leo's Heart and Stroke - MY OWN FUNDRAISER campaign - and follow him on social media as he embarks on a once in a lifetime voyage to take his heart to the highest!
Leo's goal is to raise $500,000 in support of Heart and Stroke research that can help save the lives of those who are affected by this disease.
In 2022 Leo will head to South America to climb the almost 7000m summit. This 2022 mission is all about supporting Mental Health Initiatives.
From Mt. Elbrus in Europe and Vinson Massif in Antarctica, to Denali in North America, Mt. Kilimanjaro in Africa and Carstensz in Oceania.
Heart of the Summit is looking to support Canadian Indigenous Communities, Environmental Causes, The Sick Kids Foundation, The Miracle Foundation and the Harvest Food Rescue.
Brian's story touched many in Canada and Colombia, and Leo's climbing team was able to help Brian's parents handle their mortgage, on top of health expenses.
Leo's fundraiser also paid for other expenses and aided mom to set aside a small business solution for Brian as he needed 24/7 care.
This is the cause that started this amazing journey for Leo, and the communities he is helping.
