Ride Don’t Hide 2018 | CMHA Windsor Essex
June 24, 2018 @ 6:00 am - 11:30 am
The Annual Ride Don’t Hide community bike ride hosted by the Canadian Mental Health Association (CMHA) takes place on Sunday, June 24, 2018.
The goal of Ride Don’t Hide is to raise awareness and help break the stigma surrounding mental health while raising essential funds to support mental health programs. CMHA rides will be hosted in six provinces in 31 communities with over 7,000 participants. Ride Don’t Hide has generated nearly $6 million towards mental health programs and services in communities across Canada.
The community event is a ride, not a race, with routes designed for riders of all ages and abilities—from novice rider to the advanced cyclist. Regardless of distance, you will travel a route supported from start to finish with rest stops, water to fuel the journey, fans to cheer you on, and enjoy a fun day on your bike for a great cause!
Funds raised in Windsor-Essex stay in this community to support the Bereavement program, Client Assistance Fund and Mental Health Promotion & Education.
