Who We Are

On Oct. 4, 2016, Georgia McAlpine lost her battle with depression and anxiety. In her final note, she had this request: "Please tell the truth about why I died. We need to open up the conversation." That was Georgia's Wish.

Georgia spent the final year of her life fighting for her own mental health as well as that of others, because she understood the universality of the pain mental illness can cause, to the afflicted and everyone around them.  

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.

We as a family are committed to continuing her fight for mental health for all, and are proud to participate in Ride (or Stride) Don’t Hide 2019 – known locally here in Kelowna as the Payton & Dillon Budd Memorial Ride – as part of Team Georgia's Wish. 

Team Georgia's Wish is open to anyone and everyone to join – as a rider or strider, or by collecting donations. Let's make this the biggest, baddest team in the land: riding, striding, and fighting this fight in Georgia's name.
