(CHATHAM, ON) – It’s a great way to bring awareness to heart disease and stroke research while also doing good. And it’s a great way to get your own heart pumping as you pedal through your community.

The Heart and Stroke Big Bike is making the rounds of Chatham-Kent as a number of teams fundraise to help the organization. Each time, 29 riders mount the Big Bike and literally stop traffic as they fund research that’s saving lives and supporting heart disease and stroke survivors and their families.

Last year more than 70,000 riders in over 200 communities across Canada raised over $8 million.
