Every year, thousands of Canadians ride in the Becel Heart&Stroke Ride for Heart to help us continue the life-saving research that creates more survivors. This year a new tradition begins with the addition of the run and walk to the traditional ride. Without the support of our sponsors, this incredible event wouldn’t be possible. We gratefully acknowledge the outstanding contribution and support of our caring corporate partners and supporters.
