WHAT IS RIDE DON’T HIDE?
Ride Don’t Hide is the largest mental health bike ride in Canada. But it’s more than a fundraiser—it’s a movement for mental health.
Over the last nine years, thousands of people rode millions of kilometres and raised millions of dollars for CMHA’s vital community mental health programs and services. Now for its 10th anniversary, Ride Don’t Hide 2021 is “rolling” with the times and evolving its local rides into the virtual physical activity challenge of your choice.
With 87 branches, regions and divisions in over 330 communities, participants from across Canada will set a personal challenge to ride, run, walk, dance, do yoga, jump rope, play tennis or even meditate for at least 330 minutes throughout June. No matter where you call home, you can ride and raise funds. Ride Don’t Hide 2021 is your ride, your way.
Every year, an estimated 1.6 million Canadians don’t get the mental health care they need. The pandemic has only made things worse, with isolation, economic insecurity and stress all taking their toll on our mental health. We’re all feeling the wear of tear of a year under this pandemic.
Ride Don’t Hide is an opportunity for you to boost your mood by moving and connecting with your friends, family and community, all while raising funds to support the mental health of our most vulnerable community members. Participating in Ride Don’t Hide is a chance take care of your well-being and take care of your community.
HOW DO I PARTICIPATE?
CMHA Toronto has partnered with CMHA Peel Dufferin for the Greater Toronto Ride Don’t Hide event! Funds raised from the Greater Toronto Ride will go directly to CMHA Toronto and CMHA Peel Dufferin’s mental health programs and services, which will help support people who need peer support, housing, suicide prevention education, forensic services and other programs designed to meet our community’s mental health needs.
For the month of June, set your personal challenge to support the Greater Toronto Ride! As a participant, you’ll be able to connect with teammates, track your activity, fundraise, spread the word and participate in weekly challenges all while on the go with the Ride Don’t Hide mobile app. You’ll have access to tips, tools, tricks and activities to help you take care of your mental health.
