My Message

Why I Ride

Georgia McAlpine was radiant, passionate, and loving. She was one of the most beautiful people I have ever met and my best friend. She was a girl who wanted to change the world and to bring as much hope and joy into it as she could. She wanted to help people find their voice and to create space for people to be themselves. As Georgia was working on her own mental health she was also supporting and standing up for the mental health of others. She wanted to challenge the beliefs around mental illness and see resources become more accessible for those who needed them.

On October 4th, 2016, Georgia lost her battle with anxiety and depression. In her last note, to her parents she had this request: "Please tell the truth about why I died. We need to open up the conversation.” That was Georgia’s wish and that is why I ride. 

One in five Canadians lives with a mental illness in any given year, but five in five—all of us—have mental health. You have it, I have it. And we all need to take care of it.

On June 23, 2019, Canadians from coast to coast are riding to connect—to their own mental health, to each other, to their communities, and to the nation-wide conversation on the importance of mental health for all—and I will be one of them!

Because we all deserve to feel well, whatever our mental health experience.

When we don’t talk about our emotions or our mental health we feel alone, and don’t get the help we deserve or need.

So Ride Don’t Hide is a nationwide fundraising bike ride that brings mental health into the open and raises critical funds that support CMHA programs in their own community that help Canadians take care of our mental health.

I’m proud to participate in Ride Don’t Hide 2019 and ask that you ride with me. Join me as a rider or show your support with a donation. Help me bring mental health into the open so we can all get the support and help we need to thrive!

Thank you!
