Funds from our Big Bike Events go directly towards life-saving research, education and A.E.D placements in the city. Over the past 5 years, Hamilton Big Bike donations have been able to fund groundbreaking research at the David Braley CardioVascular and Stroke Research Institute. What if they could isolate the genes that put apparently healthy young people at risk of stroke? That’s what Dr. Paré and his research team at McMaster University have been doing, supported by funds from Heart and Stroke Foundation donors. They have discovered 10 genes that are associated with stroke. They’ve already homed in on one mutation known as Notch 3, which shows up in many stroke survivors. Dr. Paré and his team believe it could explain a number of young stroke cases. Help #createsurvivors by Joining Big Bike
