Hematite Heroes for Big Bike

Big Bike for Heart and Stroke

The Hematite Heroes took on the Big Bike for Heart and Stroke for their 6th annual ride. Heart disease and stroke takes a life every seven seconds in Canada and is the 2nd leading cause of death. We at Hematite support Heart and Stroke research by riding the Big Bike every single year to raise awareness for our team members, their families and everyone in our community. About 741,800 Canadians live with the effects of a stroke (that’s equivalent to the population of New Brunswick!) and about 1 in 12 (or 2.4 million) Canadians live with heart disease. To show our support this year Hematite raised a grand total of $3,000 for Heart and Stroke research.
