Ride for Heart NL
Join us on Sunday July 10, 2016.It's an experience of a lifetime. And your chance to help create more survivors.
Whether you’re in it for a fun family ride or challenging coastal trek the Ride for Heart NL promises an unforgettable experience for all. Every rider will get the pleasure of starting out in beautiful Bowring Park, riding under the canopy of massive Maple trees alongside St. John’s beautiful Waterford River, pedaling past the bustling dock of the St. John’s Harbour and onto the narrow streets of quirky Quidi Vidi Village, and then cruise along historic Water Street.
Those up for the challenging 60km ride will also get the thrill of tackling the hills of Shea Heights to gain access to the potential spectacle of icebergs and whales off Cape Spear (the most easterly point in North America), onwards to the stunning fishing village of Petty Harbour (home of Great Big Sea’s Alan Doyle), through the quaint farmland of the Goulds and back to celebrate at Bowring Park.
Why You Should Ride
More than 66,000 Canadians die each year from heart disease and stroke—one every seven minutes. With your help, we can raise funds to support researchers across Canada who are working on breakthrough treatments that save lives and improve survivor recovery.
Why You Have to Fundraise to Participate
Participants (aged 18+) need to raise at least $100 in addition to their registration fee. And here’s why.
Cycling is a great heart-healthy activity for everyone who participates. But we want this event to benefit all Canadians! Taking part in the Ride for Heart is the perfect opportunity to raise funds that go towards preventing heart disease and stroke, saving lives and promoting recovery for survivors, families and caregivers.
Your Fundraising Will be Rewarded
