Bike for the Brain with MHAH
Bike for the Brain is an annual community bicycle ride to increase awareness that all people have the potential to recover from mental health disorders; that these are brain-based emotional, behavioral, and cognitive experiences that are common to many people. Beginning this year Mental Health America of the Heartland (MHAH) will officially be operating the Bike for the Brain ride.
Participating in Bike for the Brain makes it possible for MHAH to continue affecting a broad range of people in our community, many of whom struggle in silence or without resources against a common and growing epidemic of poor mental health and mental illness. The bike ride is Monday, Sept. 6. Registration is at 7 a.m. with event launch at 8 a.m.; the urban cycling courses are 10, 34, 55, and 65 miles in length.
Volunteers are needed to assist with registration, route set-up, traffic control, merchandise and rest stop crews. Most shifts last 3-5 hours.
