SUPPORT OUR RIDE FOR MENTAL HEALTH!

Did you know that one-in-five Canadian secondary and post-secondary students are depressed and anxious or battling other mental health issues?

Want to help us connect more Canadian kids in need with available on-campus mental health support services? Please consider donating!

Visit the official DIG Ride For Mental Health donation page here and offer your support. Any donation – big or small – will make a difference in the lives of so many Canadian students.

RIDERS: Please share this page with your families, friends, and colleagues! Every dollar donated goes directly to supporting the Lucas Fiorella Friendship Bench initiative, a Canadian not-for-profit organization dedicated to decreasing the number of attempted or completed suicides by students in Canada.

Thank you to all the riders and to Distinct Infrastructure Group, for once again sponsoring this effort!
