Clara’s Big Ride for Mental Health


Image

 

I was very impressed and excited when I heard Canadian Olympian Clara Hughes would be doing a bike ride across Canada in order to raise funds and erase the stigma that is associated with all kinds of mental illnesses. Clara will be riding 12,000 miles across Canada, and will be starting on March 14, 2014. Clara’s Big Ride for “Bell Let’s Talk” (an initiative for mental health discussion) is a 110-day bicycle tour through every province and territory, starting off in Toronto and finishing in Ottawa on July 1, 2014. 

Clara’s bike tour will help raise awareness, increase acceptance, and inspire action all in order to create a Canada where people who live with mental illness can be free of the stigma attached to it.
