Why I Ride

I am riding in memory of my wife who lost her battle with depression. Rose's depression was kept a closely guarded secret because of the stigma associated with mental illness. Had this not been the case, the outcome may have been different.  I am riding to bring mental health into the open and to end the stigma. . 

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!

Ride on, Chicoine family. It's working...every year initiatives like this one and Bell Let's Talk decrease the stigma even further. Workplace campaigns are also starting to take hold which is a relief to see. As for me I'll be riding Day 2 of MS BIke on this day but happy to support you again. Please ask me again next year!
