Your Dollars at Work

When you support the Heart&Stroke Big Bike, you help create more survivors.

Survivor Story — Jen Bogart

Waking with a pounding headache, blurry vision and an unsteady walk, Jen tried calling in sick but couldn’t find the words. She emailed instead and went back to bed. But things got worse. Much worse. Unknowingly, Jen suffered a stroke. When her friends got her to the hospital, she couldn’t walk and spoke only three words. Thankfully, doctors saved her life; but stroke changed it. With speech and occupational therapy, Jen now enjoys life at a slower pace. She reads, solves puzzles, cooks, rests, does yoga and goes for walks. Stroke didn’t stop this dynamo — and she’s still making progress.

Joe’s journey back from stroke

In mere minutes, Joe went from celebrating his wedding anniversary to being put in an ambulance on a stretcher. But it took time, hard work and support to undo the physical, mental and emotional effects of his stroke.


Why Your Support Matters

Every 7 minutes, someone in Canada dies from heart disease or stroke. We can change that. More people can survive…more people can go home to the people they love. Your Big Bike donation or fundraising efforts will help fund research that is desperately needed to develop life-saving treatments that bring hope to heart disease and stroke patients.


See The Difference A Gift Can Make

Together, we can create more survivors.

  • $40 can teach an entire family how to save a life with CPR.
  • $100 can teach three classrooms of children the foundation for heart-healthy living with the HeartSmart Kids program.
  • $500 can help administer an Automated External Defibrillator training course that could save lives.
  • $1,000 can help equip a lab with a blood pressure monitor to help keep patients healthy.
  • $2,000 can help researchers hire the summer research assistants that are critical to a research study’s success.
  • $4,000 can place an Automated External Defibrillator (AED) in a community centre or hockey arena, which can increase the chance of surviving a cardiac arrest.
  • $5,000 can help support e-tool development so people can access health information and customized action plans online.
  • $6,000 can train a future medical researcher, which is vital to improving heart health and heart medicine.
  • $10,000 supports advocacy efforts that lead to legislation on important heart-health issues like smoking, trans fats and AEDs.
  • $15,000 can fund a scholarship to mentor a student in medical research.
