Ride Away Stigma 2016 – Squamish
The first annual Ride Away Stigma Sea to Sky event (www.rideawaystigmas2s.com) was a huge success! I can’t wait for this weekend in Hamilton!
Well I am beyond overwhelmed by all the love, support and commitment from today! Thank you for showing all those that are struggling in silence how many people out there truly care. The weather today was a beautiful metaphor. It started out down pouring with rain and I worried if anyone would come out or would I be there all alone. Around 9:00 people started showing up and as more and more people came the sun started shining more and more. We may have times were we feel all alone but with support and being together we can get through those hard times. Thank you Squamish for being a part of such a powerful day! Together we had 120 cyclists out plus lot of volunteers and spectators. And we raised over $17 000!! That is beyond amazing if you ask me 🙂
Thank you again to the organizing committee, our sponsors, volunteers and community members. Today could not have been so successful without all of you!
