Most of us go through life solving our day-to-day problems without needing help to cope with our feelings. But a severe illness, an accident or an emotional crisis can overwhelm us, at least temporarily, and suddenly we need help.
Some people worry about asking for help because there can be stigma around mental health problems. They may believe that asking for help means admitting that something is wrong. Some people worry about how others might see them. Asking for help means that you want to make changes or take steps towards your new health goals. We should celebrate the courage it takes to speak up and make changes. Getting help is part of recovery
Cycling has the power to engage, inspire and bring a community together. Positive Spin strives to do all of these things while creating a challenging day of cycling and bringing awareness to mental health.
- We want to promote cycling, provide a challenge, and showcase the mental health benefits associated to the sport.
- We want to celebrate cycling with an unforgettable ride.
- We want to educate by showing people the benefits of cycling and taking the stigma out of mental health issues.
- We want to connect people over a challenging and beautiful cycling route.
This is WHY you’re invited to join us and your fellow cyclists for a great day on two-wheels exploring the Chilliwack area.
