On Sunday, June 23 a team of RRC staff and students, along with some family members, supported Canadian Mental Health Association by participating in Ride Don’t Hide – Canada’s largest mental health bike ride.
The team enjoyed a beautiful 20 km ride, beginning at The Forks and continuing through St. Boniface, Assiniboine Ave., Wolseley, River Heights, Tuxedo, Crescentwood and back along the river path to The Forks.
Sponsored by RRC’s Healthy Minds, Healthy College Initiative, the team raised funds and awareness, bringing mental health out into the open.
Three cheers for your RRC team members:
- Angela Tessier (and partner Tom)
- Michelle Lodewyks (and partner Josh)
- Tom Liu
- Leslie Ternowetsky
- Breanna Sawatzky (with family Joel, Vincent and Nevica)
- Sherry Seymour
- Tanya Cole

Across Canada, over 10 000 riders participated, raising over $2 million dollars for community based mental health supports. Go team!
