Get moving, share your heart

Event Day is here! Time to ride, walk or run your heart-shaped route, and join supporters across Canada for the virtual Manulife Heart & Stroke Ride for Heart.

You can’t beat Event Day!

Today you're making an impact and inspiring your network with a community of survivors, caregivers, and supporters nationally. You'll see and hear unique and moving stories from researchers and survivors.

It’s a special day for sharing your heart and beating heart disease and stroke together. Here’s everything you need to know to make the most of this heart-filled day!

Event day inspiration

Be inspired and compliment your event day experience by watching our virtual start and finish line messages when it works for you! (Also, available in our App when you complete your customized virtual heart map).

  • Start line video - Get pumped before you start your ride, run or walk with our community of Heart & Stroke supporters from across the country.
  • Finish line video - You’ve done it and crossed the virtual finish line! Along with a special message from our title sponsor, Manulife, it’s time to celebrate all of your accomplishments.

We’ve also created special event day content to keep you inspired as you ride, run or walk. Listen to some Ride for Heart supporters about why Heart & Stroke means so much to them. You’ll hear from:

  • Melanie, a Team Manulife rider, about why Heart & Stroke means so much to her family.
  • Dr. Paré, a Heart & Stroke researcher, will share how Heart & Stroke helps all Canadians and brings hope for the future.
  • Rob, a Heart & Stroke supporter who wants to say a big thank you for all you do.
