In 2016 A record 7160 riders of all ages took part in Canada’s largest community bike ride to banish the stigma around mental illness – and had a great time. A Record-Breaking Shoppers Drug Mart Ride Don’t Hide Raises $1.36 Million for Mental Health Programs.
The Ride Don’t Hide movement began with Michael Schratter, a Canadian teacher living with bipolar disorder. In 2010-11, Michael cycled 40,000 km around the world to share his story and empower others to help break the stigma around mental illness, as he said, “one pedal at a time”. His historic journey touched people all over the world, and has become a national movement that is both raising funds for mental health programs and breaking the stigma around mental illness through annual Ride Don’t Hide community events in support of the Canadian Mental Health Association. The Ride Don’t Hide program is led nationally by CMHA BC.
