Why I Ride....???

I will be participating in the Ride Don’t Hide event in memory of my sister Sandra Churches who suffered with mental illness for years. Sandra took part in this event when she was able to!  Since she is no longer here I will be taking part for her this year, and I will be riding her bike❤️ I will also be participating for my close family and friends that battle the struggle every day 💔

I ride to bring mental health into the open.

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!

I rode the big bike and loved it, so I know these kinds of events are really soul stretching and lots of connecting. Happy to support anything that ends the silence and stigma, my friend.
