Across the country, the 2017 Ride Don’t Hide event raised $1.6M for vital mental health programs and initiatives. This could not have happened without the support of thousands of Canadians who participated from coast to coast. Through their efforts, in their communities and workplaces, they helped raise awareness about mental health and the need to eliminate the stigma associated with mental illness.
