We are very sorry to inform everyone that we must cancel this year’s Move for Mental Health event on July 11th due to COVID-19 concerns. We plan to donate all proceeds from next year’s event (and any donations we receive this year) to COP2COP. We hope everyone is staying safe and healthy during this time. Thank you all for your support, and we invite you to participate in an activity that we have planned for this year in place of our usual event, titled Mail for Mental Health.
To learn more about our Mail for Mental Health initiative, please see the #MailforMentalHealth tab above. This activity is meant to be a simple yet meaningful step toward our mental health mission. We hope to see you all at next year's event!
Thank you for all of your support at our 2019 event on June 2! It was amazing to hear so many different stories and connections to mental health, and see so many people engaged with the topic. If you would like to view all of the amazing pictures that were taken at the event, please click the button below:
We are a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization focused on mental health education and reducing the stigma associated with mental illness.
We host an annual charity bike ride (and 1 mile fun walk!) to raise awareness for mental health and raise funds that promote mental health initiatives in our community. Join us on July 11th, 2020 for the big event!
We offer 25, 40, and 65 mile routes for cyclists, as well as a fun and scenic 1 mile fun walk for all to enjoy!
My name is Sami, and I am a mental health advocate because of my own story – I was diagnosed with Obsessive Compulsive Disorder at the age of three and I have been lucky enough to be able to overcome so much of it to date. OCD is characterized by obsessions, or heightened anxiety around certain stimuli, and compulsions, or rituals that momentarily appear to relieve this anxiety. You can read more about OCD and related disorders here. The fact is, however, that some are not able to get the help and means of support that they may need, and I advocate for them and to break the societal stigma associated with mental health. I founded this nonprofit in order to raise awareness about mental health in the community and beyond, and to decrease the stigma associated with mental illness. I hope you can join us to ride or volunteer, and I hope to see you at this year's event!
Please feel free to contact Sami directly with any questions that you may have at firstname.lastname@example.org
