On Frday, May 27th, some of Saskarc’s employees teamed up with other Oxbow community members to participate in The Heart & Stroke Big Bike Ride. Saskarc also donated $500 to the charity event. All of the money raised through the Big Bike Ride goes to the Heart and Stroke Foundation, where they’ll use it to develop life-saving treatments that bring hope to heart disease and stroke patients. Last year over 70,000 riders, in over 200 communities coast to coast, helped raise over $8 million for research! This is helping us change the lives of not only heart disease and stroke patients, but all Canadians.

Saskarc-BigBikeRide-2016Saskarc employee, Sheryl March recapped on the event, “What a great experience! Had a free rain shower and lots of exercise riding around the streets of Oxbow for The Heart and Stroke Foundation. All for a good cause!”

Saskarc is here to support charities affecting the lives of local residents in Oxbow, Sk. Showing our support hopefully shines light on the disease and can ultimately help fund research. Saskarc is glad to be part of it!

 

What is the big bike event?

Teams are made up of 29 enthusiastic riders who each commit to support heart disease and stroke research. On event day, a Heart & Stroke Foundation team leader accompanies the group of enthusiastic peddlers as they pedal through the community and celebrate their accomplishments and funds raised!
