The Ride Don’t Hide in Windsor yesterday was such an inspiration - from our volunteers and staff to our riders to our sponsors and speakers. Thank you everyone!

Beyond raising money this event is about reducing stigma. We still have a journey ahead to increase funding and exposure so we can reach out to more people. Everyone is touched by mental illness - everyone - so it is a critical community health issue. And participating in such a motivational event like Ride Don’t Hide does our “sole” good. It is a big part of our Sole Focus!

Our ride, part of 25+ communities across Canada, is the largest mental health bike ride in Canada with almost 10,000 riders and hundreds more family members, friends and volunteers across Canada taking part, raising more than $2 million each year for the Canadian Mental Health Association.

It was a great event and we hope to encourage more people to sponsor and participate next year. We have room for more sponsor booths and tables so sign up early!

Thank you #YQG

This morning we heard important words during a time of alarming stats about opiods and substance abuse : “Addicts don’t want to be addicts” — Ken Daniels - Detroit Red Wings announcer and founder of Jamie Daniels Foundation “They just don’t want to feel the pain when they aren’t high”
It’s shame and stigma that often precludes recovery.
Ken knows this all too well. When we shy away from talking about addictions and
substance abuse of our children, we often are contributing to the problem. Alcohol, opiods and a wide range of substances can lead to addiction- and even death. Ken called on parents, educators, First Responders, health care providers, doctors to look deeper into substance abuse - and end the silence.
Thanks to Bruce Krauter EMS for providing an update on the local opiod and substance abuse strategy report. Kim Willis
