“We decided to cross the finish line together, we began this ride as strangers and we were now finishing as a team, together. I crossed the finish line, in the company of four new friends, with huge sense of accomplishment, and tears in my eyes. Finishing the ride in the first group signified a snapshot of my journey and struggle with mental illness, one I am finally winning.” – Ambassador Amie Krasnozon
