WHAT: The Heart & Stroke Big Bike is an exciting fundraiser that is ideal for community organizations, companies and groups wishing to support the Heart and Stroke Foundation.

Presented by the Dairy Farmers of Canada, the Heart & Stroke Big Bike is one of the primary community fundraising events for the Heart and Stroke Foundation. This fun-filled event earned its name from the 30-seat bicycle teams of energetic riders who pedal through 200 communities in nine provinces coast to coast – raising awareness and funds along the way.

Teams made up of up to 29 energetic riders, plus a driver each commit to raise a minimum of $50 and pedal through their community in support of heart disease and stroke research. This year we aim to raise 8.55 million dollars. Through events like Heart & Stroke Big Bike, we’re transforming how communities think about, prevent, manage and live with heart disease and stroke.

Come and cheer on your local community riders at our Big Bike event as they help make a difference by creating more survivors every day! Please look for opportunities in Fraser Lake to donate to these two amazing teams.

WHO: The Spirit of Fraser Lake Community team and the Fraser Lake Retailers team will be participating in this year’s Big Bike in Fraser Lake. But we have room for a few more riders!
