My Message

Ohana (Hawaiian term for family) is our team name as to us it means that family sticks together always, forever, and unconditionally.  The term 'family' extends beyond the family tree; it involves friends as well. Like dropping a pebble into calm waters, the ever widening ripples represents our growing ‘family’ and circles of support. 

We are riding to support our family and friends who are affected by mental illness. Team Ohana is looking for your support to help eliminate the fear of talking about mental disorders.

Mental illness is not a choice; it is a no-fault, biologically based brain disorder. No one chooses to have a mental illness – just as no one chooses to have a heart attack or cancer. The truth of the matter is that brain disorders can strike anyone. We do not know enough about diseases of the mind, but the more informed we are, the better our community can respond in a supportive environment. While there is a movement to de-stigmatize mental disorders, we know there is a long way to go. If we can break the silence and increase awareness we can decrease the stigma and misinformation associated with  mental illness. 

Open communication will help those who are in need of support get that support. The more we bring this to the forefront, the more we will understand the true breadth of how mental disorders affect so many people. Increased awareness equates to support for research and treatment for prevention and cures.

On June 24, 2018, the Canadian Mental Health Association’s Ride Don’t Hide event will be taking place across Canada to raise funds for mental health programs and initiatives. Thousands of cyclists will come together to support mental health for all Canadians.

We’re proud to participate in Ride Don’t Hide 2018 and invite you to join the movement and show your support with a donation to our team or individual rider, or by joining us as a rider, a virtual rider, or a volunteer.

Please help us with our goal to raise awareness and help break the stigma surrounding mental health while raising essential funds to support mental health programs in our community.

Thank you!
