Ride for Suicide Prevention

A personal campaign sponsored by Chris Bennett

Last spring I rode my bike 400 miles across Morocco and fell in love with bike touring. This spring I’m going to attempt to ride my bike 4000 miles across the US to raise money for a good cause and I need your help.

Starting the first week of March 2020 I will attempt to ride my bike from San Diego, California to Portland, Maine.  The goal of this journey of almost 4000 miles, which I hope to complete in two months, is to raise funds for suicide prevention, erase the stigma surrounding suicide and its causes, to encourage those suffering from mental illness to seek treatment, and to show support for the families and friends of the 30,000 Americans who die by suicide and the 20 million people that suffer from depression each year.

Are you or do you know anyone personally affected by suicide? Please don’t hesitate to reach out if you would like to share your story with me and have your portrait taken to help raise awareness about suicide.
