RIDE BIG. MAKE A BIG DIFFERENCE.

Soon, Big Bike teams across Canada will rally together to ride a “gigantic bike” to raise funds for life-saving heart and stroke research.

This year’s big ride carries a powerful message: When it comes to women’s heart and brain health, it’s #TimeToSeeRed:

  • Heart disease and stroke are the #1 cause of premature death for women in Canada
  • Heart attack symptoms go unrecognized in 53% of women
  • 2/3 of heart disease and stroke clinical research focuses on men

The numbers say it all. Women are under-researched, under-diagnosed, under-treated, and dying unnecessarily. It’s time to close the research gap and stop women dying unnecessarily. It’s #TimeToSeeRed.

By making a donation, you’ll become part of the push for change – shining a spotlight on the inequities and fueling the scientific discovery and collaborations needed to save lives.

Funding for research is needed for this crucial cause. Please donate to save lives and give the women we love #MoreMoments.  

Thank you for your support!
