Big Bike coming to Skke

A fundraiser for the Heart and Stroke Foundation, Big Bike raises money for research

One bike. 30 seats. 20 minutes. Two kilometres.

For the first time ever, the Big Bike is coming to Sooke.

A fundraiser for the Heart and Stroke Foundation, the Big Bike is made of 29 riders who pledge $50 or more to support heart disease and stroke research. On event day, a foundation driver will accompany participants through the community on a two-kilometre ride.

Last year, more than 70,000 riders in 200 communities across Canada, helped raise more than $8 million for research.

The Sooke ride will take place June 9.
