Dr. Ross shared her training schedule, which is at its peak; she is working out six days a week to prepare herself for the two week expedition.

She will be joined by PMCC cardiologist Dr. Diego Delgado, Dale Shippam, a heart transplant recipient and retired firefighter, and Montreal Heart Institute’s Dr. Michel White.

The group will be pushing themselves to the limit as they ski to the South Pole in order to raise awareness for heart failure research, cardiac transplantation and heart health.

Since the first trek eight years ago, more than $1 million has been raised through the Test your limits initiatives for the Peter Munk Cardiac Centre.

During their trek you can follow Dr. Ross’ blog or follow the Peter Munk Cardiac Centre on Facebook and Twitter (@PMCCCampaign).

Stay tuned for updates!
