Big Bike rides again

Big Bike rides again – A team from TG Minto was among the local groups to take a ride on the Heart and Stroke Big Bike to raise funds and awareness for the Heart and Stroke Foundation on June 19. Teams made up of 29 riders plus a driver each commit to raise a minimum of $50 and pedal through their community in support of heart disease and stroke research. This year the organization hopes to  raise $148,000 in the Wellington/Dufferin region and $8.55 million dollars across Canada. Teams from TG Minto and Royal Terrace rode the bike in Palmerston, while members of the Harrison and Clifford communities pedaled through Harriston.    photo by Patrick Raftis
