My Message

Just over 7 years ago I took up the sport of cycling to combat some serious running injuries.    Who would have known at that time that my world was about to change.  Not only did I fall in love with the sport, but also my cycling partner.  Rob taught me strength, determination, and that there is no such thing as a hill.  Those hills he spoke of now mean more than just the roads ahead.

The unexpected happens.  The unknown happens.  Cracks are part of our history and will always be with us.  Living with mental health is all about learning how to deal with those scars.  The scars no one sees.  But most often, do not want to hear about. 

There are over 200 confirmed forms of mental illness that affect 450 million people around the world.  For some, the hardest challenge in a day is doing well on a test, or perfectly executing a meeting with their boss.   For others, the most difficult activity is simply getting out of bed, or making it through the day without an emotional breakdown.  

Last year, team Vaughan Hears the Gears came together for the first time, as a group of friends, supporting friends, through many losses and challenges in our lives.   Together we are better.   Together we are stronger.   Together we find balance in the world, even if it is just for that one split moment or one tough hill.

On June 24 we will ride again in the 2018 Ride Don’t Hide, raising awareness for mental health.   Please support me, in celebration of Rob, and help to break the silence for all those who are struggling to be heard.

Thank you!
