On Friday, June 12, 2015 Westcorp team members from all across Edmonton joined together to participate in the Heart & Stroke Foundation – Big Bike fundraiser riding the bike in the Edmonton neighbourhood of Old Strathcona. The Big Bike initiative aims to raise money and awareness for heart health for the Heart & Stroke Foundation. The Big Bike holds 29 riders and each rider is asked to raise a minimum of $50 in order to participate.  The Westcorp team went over and above in their fundraising efforts and raised nearly $8,000 for the Heart and Stroke foundation! Last year over 70,000 riders, in over 200 communities coast to coast, helped raise over $8 million for research! This is helping to change the lives of not only heart disease and stroke patients, but all Canadians.  A big thank you goes out to all of the Westcorp riders and to the Westcorp team members that came out to cheer them on as they rode by!
