Spring 2021 – Recreational Prize – Legend Boat Winner Linda Guay, Everett

Linda Guay was gassing up at Canadian Tire when her phone rang. She recalls, “I looked and it was Heart & Stroke. When I got home, I was in the kitchen when the phone rang again.” This time, she picked up. 
 
She was told that she’d won a prize in the Heart and Stroke Lottery. “The girl said I’d won the fishing boat and I repeated ‘fishing boat’?” Then, Linda learned that her Legend 2021 16 ProSport SC Package (valued at nearly $20,000) included a state-of-the-art motor and trailer as well.  
 
For Linda, this was great news: “The reason I picked the boat instead of the cash is we have a pontoon boat, but we don’t have a fishing boat. Every time someone says we’re going fishing, we kind of look at each other and say ‘gee we should get a fishing boat.’ And bingo, I WON!” She adds: “We have many friends that love to fish, and they’re overjoyed they’ll be coming out with us.” 
 
Linda has already purchased tickets for the next Heart & Stroke Lottery because, like so many of us, her connection to the cause is personal: “In 2002 my stepfather had a hip replacement, but he died on the operating table from a heart attack. In 2010, my mother died of congestive heart failure. Every time I’m on the boat, I’ll be thinking about the work of Heart & Stroke.” 
 
Every time I’m out on the boat I’ll be thinking of the Heart & Stroke.
