Big Bike rolls through Chilliwack

The Cottonwood Mall Peddlers team (above) rode the Heart and Stroke Foundation's Big Bike along Luckakuck Way on Monday afternoon.

Monday's event saw three teams ride the Big Bike: Cottonwood Mall, Mountain-Sized Hearts (Mountain/Kent Institutions) and the Dream Team (Convergys, formerly known as Stream).

The large, red bike can hold up to 30 people (including a driver) and each person on the team commits to raising $50 or more for heart disease and stroke research.

The Cottonwood Mall Peddlers raised $855, Mountain-Sized Hearts raised $2,356.45, and Dream Team raised $2,180, for a combined total of $5,391.45 for the Heart and Stroke Foundation.

Last year, more than 65,000 riders, in 200-plus communities, helped raise more than $8.4 million for heart and stroke research.
