A Message From Our Founder

Hi everyone!


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!
