Blackville Foodland Hosting 2nd Annual Big Bike Run & BBQ

Blackville Foodland is bringing the Heart & Stroke’s Big Bike back to Blackville again this year for their second annual Big Bike Run.

The run kicks off at Foodland on Friday, September 13 at 9:30am. Bikers will ride down Main Street to Hooked N’ Cooked and back. One bike. 30 seats. 20 minutes. 2kms. One great team working to create more survivors!

The Heart&Stroke Big Bike is a team event geared towards companies, community organizations and groups. Teams are made up of 29 enthusiastic riders who together commit to raise $1500 or more to support heart disease and stroke research. On event day, one of the Big Bike drivers will accompany you as you pedal through our village and celebrate your accomplishments! Each rider will collect pledges.

If you, your coworkers or group would like to participate on the run, please contact Naomi Savoie at 843-9001 or 480-1568.

As part of the fundraising efforts, a BBQ will be held on Friday, August 30 at Foodland beginning at 11:00am. Tickets will also be available to purchase for a chance to win one round trip flight for two to any Westjet destination. Tickets are $5 each or 10 for $25.
