Cardiovascular disease is a leading cause of death for Canadian men and women. So Ottawa Tamil Association (OTA) team is going to be riding the Heart&Stroke Big Bike to help create more survivors!

Research has shown that people of South Asian decent including Tamil Canadian community are at greater risk of developing heart disease and stroke – and at much earlier age – compared with other ethnic groups.

In addition to supporting Heart and Stroke foundation to develop lifesaving treatments, participating and contributing to Bike Big also raise awareness and choice of healthy lifestyle among Canadian Tamil community as well.

All of the money raised through Big Bike will go to the Heart and Stroke Foundation, where they’ll use it to develop life-saving treatments that bring hope to heart disease and stroke patients.
