Saturday, May 11, 2019, starting at 10 am
Join the Peace of Mind Foundation in the 2nd Annual Ride for Mental Health on Saturday, May 11, 2019. By officer escort, we will be riding through the city of Houston starting at Gallery Furniture North Freeway and ending at Gallery Furniture Grand Parkway. The purpose of the Ride for Mental Health is to help raise awareness and end the stigma associated with mental health. As many as 1 in 5 adults will experience a mental health condition in their lifetime impacting both men and women. Last year, we partnered with Orange County Choppers (American Choppers Show) to create two custom bikes that represent the journey someone takes living with a mental illness. The two bikes represent life before treatment and after treatment. Our goal with this event is to unite mental health organizations along with the motorcycle community to end stigma related to mental health and bring awareness to valuable resources in our community. #Ride4MentalHealth
By officer escort (sponsored by Woodforest National Bank), the ride will start at Gallery Furniture North Freeway (6006 North Fwy, Houston, TX 77076) and end at Gallery Furniture Grand Parkway (7227 West Grand Parkway South, Richmond, TX 77407). Route TBA.
