And that the first step is making it safe and normal to talk about our mental health, honestly and openly. 

Your participation in Ride Don’t Hide brings mental health into the open. By being part of the Ride, you are standing up for mental health and showing others that we are not alone. Your efforts in fundraising help people in your community access the support and services they need to take care of their mental health. 

So, we built this Rider Centre as your place for all things Ride Don’t Hide – fundraising tips and tricks, training and safety support and awesome perks and prizes!

We’re constantly adding new items to the Rider Centre, so come back often!


Fundraising How To

Some people go beyond what’s expected and commit themselves heart and soul to a cause; lucky for CMHA, you are one of those people. As a Ride Don’t Hide rider, you are someone who cares deeply that everyone’s mental health be promoted, protected and celebrated. The funds you raise for Ride Don’t Hide go to vital Canadian Mental Health Association programs in your community that help people protect, support and celebrate their mental health. These programs change lives. They save lives.

We know that fundraising isn’t easy – but we also believe that bringing mental health into the open and ensuring we all have the services and support we need to thrive is a cause worth fighting for. And we are here to help.

Here are our best tools, tips and tricks to help you bring mental health into the open and make a difference.
