"When I speak to other heart attack survivors the predominant emotion they express living with is fear.  Fear that they'll have another heart attack.  Fear that because they are now living with a damaged heart they will develop a deadly arrhythmia. Fear that they have lost the ability to be active as they once had been.
I want to show my fellow heart attack survivors that you CAN overcome and improve your health post heart attack and you CAN live a life without fear."
Jon Patrick Hyde on why he founded Summit4CAD
MT. HALEAKALA CLIMB - INAUGURAL EVENT
MAUI, HAWAII, USA
OCTOBER 2017 - The one year anniversary of Summit4CAD founder Jon Patrick Hyde's heart attack.  In October 2016 Jon underwent emergency heart surgery to save his life - he experienced a "Widowmaker" heart attack - which has a 100% mortality rate if untreated.  With treatment the mortality rate is still 90%; thus the name Widowmaker.

To celebrate his survival and complete recovery Jon will tackle the most difficult paved climbing course and second overall most difficult climb course in the United States.*

More details to come as the day of this ride draws near.  Check back here for details and updates!

*Mt. Haleakala is a 36 mile paved course which leaves sea level and climbs to 10,023ft.  The most difficult climb course in the USA (and considered by many cyclists to be the most difficult in the world) is one island over on the "Big Island" - Hawaii at Mauna Kea - this 13,802ft - 41.7 mile course includes several kilometers of unpaved, gravel/dirt roads to reach the summit.
