What to expect
The Manulife Heart & Stroke Ride for Heart wouldn’t be possible without our dedicated and enthusiastic volunteers. They make Ride for Heart a success, so Heart & Stroke can continue promoting health, saving lives, and enhancing recovery.
Every volunteer is a valued and essential part of achieving Heart & Stroke’s vision of healthy lives uninterrupted by heart disease and stroke.
We believe: Volunteers are the heart of the Foundation.
Opportunities to give back, use your skills, meet people and have fun at Ride for Heart are available over four days: from Thursday, June 4 to Sunday, June 7 at Exhibition Place in Toronto.
