About The Payton & Dillon Budd Memorial Ride:
At CMHA Kelowna we want to let anyone struggling in silence to know they are not alone. That’s why we are dedicating our Ride Don’t Hide event to the memory of two brothers in our community. The Payton and Dillon Budd Memorial Ride is a rallying point for us all: Anyone can experience poor emotional or mental health. Anyone can be at risk for thoughts of suicide. No one should have to hide or stay silent. On June 23rd, join us and ride in plain sight to raise funds for programs and services in our community.
Ride Don’t Hide is a nation-wide fundraising bike ride that gives thousands of people across Canada the opportunity to connect—to their own mental health, to each other and to their broader communities, while raising the critical funds that support CMHA programs in their own community that help Canadians take care of our mental health.
We are looking for volunteers for the 2019 event! We’d love to hear from you – contact our Volunteer Coordinator today: firstname.lastname@example.org
The 2018 event was an overwhelming success. Thank you to all of our riders, volunteers and sponsors.
