Manulife to sponsor Heart & Stroke Ride for Heart
Manulife Financial of Toronto has signed a multi-year sponsorship agreement with the Heart & Stroke Foundation. The agreement makes Manulife the title sponsor of the foundation's annual "Ride for Heart" fundraising initiative, which involves participants walking, running and cycling in support of heart disease and stroke research. During the sponsorship, the event will be rebranded the "Manulife Heart & Stroke Ride for Heart."
"Manulife is committed to helping Canadians live healthy and active lives so partnering with Heart & Stroke as a title sponsor for 'Ride for Heart' was a natural fit for us," said Peter Wilkinson, senior vice-president of regulatory and public affairs at Manulife. "We're excited to support this initiative and encourage people to get on their bikes and lace up their sneakers on June 3 next year."
