The Heart&Stroke Big Bike is one of our most FUN-raising fundraising events. Causing heads to turn wherever it goes, the event is named after the BIG 30-seat BIKE. Teams of 29 enthusiastic riders (and one driver provided by the Foundation) pedal through their community in support of heart and stroke research.
A vital fundraiser with impressive results, the Big Bike continues to engage Canadians across the country. Last year, over 40,000 riders, in 200+ communities, helped raise more than $7 million for research! This is helping us achieve even greater results that change the lives of not only heart and stroke patients, but all Canadians.
