“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

“I never looked back after 2016 and now enjoy my new “Wheel of life!" I am always smiling, engaging in my children’s lives and reaping the physical benefits of riding. Ride Don’t Hide not only helped me mentally and physically, it has helped me find myself on my own terms, emotionally. I never thought two wheels and a charity ride would help so much… I have learned so much about supportive groups and resources available to make me feel like I am not alone…I have reached a place that I never thought was possible five years ago.” - Ambassador Morris Bellus
