Haiku walking tour for Ride for Heart 2018 Updates

Had a great time and met many people at #RideForHeart. Took some photos and wrote some haiku-ish for that… thank you all for support and donation of money or haiku...

medal for each
four on one bike
cheers in morning breezes

where are you?
at the finish line
I capture the passing of others

fun to check up
my heartbeats go fast
many rounds of riding

waiting to walk
they hold heart haiku cards
cheering Ride for Heart

Because I believe a healthy and happy life is very important, I am fundraising for the 2018 Manulife Heart & Stroke Ride for Heart on June 3. Your donation will push forward life-saving research like this and more and fund incredible breakthroughs to create more survivors of heart disease and stroke!

I choose to walk in the event because I want to do both Walking and haiku writing so that I can write about what I see and feel along the journey. Haiku is a three-line short poem. Everyone is welcome to join me to experience it. It is a healthy and mindful way of living. Here are some examples I wrote to start…

Today I sent my call for submission “Heart Haiku” for Ride for Heart 2018, I am happy to see that many haiku from US, UK and Canada have arrived.  Here is the link for Heart Haiku from Ride for Heart supporters.   I will keep adding more. After I collect them, I will make small cards like the above samples and distribute them while I am walking for Ride for Heart.
