My Team Message
This June, I am going to be riding 60km to remember my sister, who died last September. As you may know, she had lived for 10+ years through a large struggle with mental illness, and passed away as a result of her journey. She was expectantly found in her bed at a psychiatric hospital less than a week before I married my love. There are many questions that we still have, but one thing I know is that cycling feels like freedom. And, I truely believe that Rebecca is now free from the chaos that plauged her life. I cycle to remember the creative, feisty, and passionate woman that my sister was.

In her death, I want to support women and their families who are currently living with mental illness. Mental illness, if it be depression, schizophrenia, addiction, etc etc, doesnt just affect the person, it affects us all. I would love for you to join my team "For the love of..." in order to not only remember Rebecca, but also to support any woman that you know, who might live with mental illness.

Shoppers Drug Mart Ride Don’t Hide 2013 will be held on Sunday, June 23 with all 19 CMHA branches in BC supporting or hosting local rides in respective communities throughout BC. CMHA BC's goals are to raise $400,000, engage 2,500 participants, and host 13 Shoppers Drug Mart Ride Don’t Hide local community events throughout BC on one day. All proceeds will benefit CMHA's mental health programs/services for women and their families.

We invite you to join as a rider, donor, virtual rider, or volunteer to help break the stigma associated with mental illness as you Ride Don’t Hide. There is no health without mental health!
