Smart Commute Central York and the Newmarket Chamber of Commerce are happy to be supporting the New Roads Lakeride this year. Details below graphic…
Many of you may be aware of this event, but this year it’s especially important given that it supports Southlake’s Mental Health Foundation and will be one of the biggest yet. Seventeen patients experiencing a mental health crisis visit the Newmarket hospital each day. Southlake’s Regional Mental Health Program sees more than 20,000 adult outpatient and 11,000 child and adolescent visits every year!
As awareness for mental illness increases, so too does the need for support. With only 84 adult mental health inpatient beds in all of York Region, serving more than 1.2 million people, the need for mental health services is rapidly increasing.
Three ways to participate:
- Virtual ride with Olympian Georgia Simmerling on September 4
- Annual in-person ride with 20, 45, 80, and 125km routes with World Cup Gold Medalist Ed Veal on September 19
- Ride your Way – all of September
There will also be a new online auction running from September 4 to the 19th!
