The Huron County office of the Heart and Stroke Foundation is recruiting teams to participate in Huron County's annual Big Bike event, presented by Dairy Farmers of Canada, which is taking place at the Clinton Raceway June 23.
Local organizations are invited to help Take a Seat to Extend a Life by getting a team of 29 together to ride a two kilometer route in their community on Canada's only 30-seat bike.
“This fun, team-building event is a great opportunity to increase employee morale and your organization's visibility in the community and all for a good cause” says Katherine Prospero Area Coordinator of the Huron County office of the Heart and Stroke Foundation.
Every seven minutes a Canadian dies from heart disease or stroke, hospitalizing more than 2000 people in Huron County each year. “Events like Big Bike allow the Foundation to continue funding world-class heart disease and stroke research, advocacy, and health promotion that is improving the lives of all Canadians,” said Prospero. “We're helping give Canadians longer, fuller, healthier lives.”
Last year Huron County's Big Bike raised over $17,000 towards life-saving research including local research projects. Nine in 10 of us have at least one risk factor for heart related illnesses.
Register today to put your organization in the spotlight and to help continue the tradition. The Heart and Stroke Foundation (heartandstroke.ca), a volunteer-based health charity, leads in eliminating heart disease and stroke, reducing their impact through the advancement of research and its application, the promotion of healthy living and advocacy.
