For more than 60 years, Heart & Stroke has been dedicated to fighting heart disease and stroke. The work done by this organization has saved thousands of lives and improved the lives of millions of others.
In order to raise funds and awareness for Heart and Stroke, CCC participating companies have the opportunity to ride the Heart and Stroke Big Bike!
For 20 minutes, 29 riders power one Big Bike. On event day, one of Heart and Stroke's drivers will accompany your riders as they pedal through the community and celebrate your accomplishments. While your team pedals, you literally stop traffic to support critical heart disease and stroke research, so you’ll feel good, while doing good. But be warned: The minute you stop, you’ll want to climb right back on. It’s that much fun!
Five points can be earned within this section of the Charity Challenge.
Register a minimum of 18 Big Bike riders by June 22. Register your riders online at www.bigbike.ca
Your company will receive a point for hosting a FUNdraiser if you meet the following criteria:
Take a picture of the initiative you put into place (Ideas: Wax on Wax Off, Pie in the Face, Wine Survivor, Jeans/Red Week, etc., - get creative! Heart and Stroke also has plenty of ideas from years passed!)
Post your photo on social media (Facebook, Instagram, Twitter or any combination thereof) from a corporate OR personal account. Your post must clearly indicate which company you work for so that your points are correctly allotted.
Tag Heart and Stroke and Calgary Corporate Challenge in your post. Include the following hashtags: #bigbike #bigbikeyyc #MoreMoments #CCC2018
Note: You are welcome and encouraged to invite representatives from the Heart and Stroke Foundation to your FUNdraiser, if applicable. Contact your Big Bike Coordinator directly to arrange this.
