Kelowna has a big heart

The Heart & Stroke Big Bike event in Kelowna raised $44,812 for the B.C./Yukon On behalf of the Heart and Stroke Foundation.

This year, dedicated riders and generous donors in Kelowna joined in support of the Big Bike fundraiser with 82 other communities across B.C.  and 7,000 participants.

Heart disease and stroke cost the Canadian economy more than $22 billion a year and events like Heart and Stroke Big Bike allow the foundation to continue funding world-class heart disease and stroke research, advocacy and health promotion and improve Canadians’ lives.
