With 236 riders registered and over $55,000 raised CMHA Waterloo Wellington’s 3rd annual Ride Don’t Hide event was our most successful to date!
Heavy rain did not dampen the spirits of our participants. Cyclists donned their best rain gear and took on an 80km, 40km, 24km or a family-friendly 9.5km ride through the beautiful townships of Woolwich and Wellesley.
Hearing the stories of why people ride and support the Canadian Mental Health Association Waterloo Wellington is truly inspiring. Congratulations and thank you to those who participated in the ride. You cycled to put an end to the stigma of mental illness and the funds you raised will go directly to help those with mental health, addiction and developmental needs.
Thank you to our many volunteers who also braved the rain to support our riders.
