Berry Architecture Community Wellness Ride in Support of Canadian Mental Health Association (CMHA)-Central Alberta Region and Central Alberta Brain Injury Society (CABIS)
Registrations are now being accepted for the 9th Annual Berry Architecture Community Wellness Ride taking place on August 19th, 2017 in Red Deer.
“This is a great opportunity for the community to get behind two local agencies that provide support services and programming for individuals and families impacted by mental health issues, addiction, and acquired brain injuries,” says Trish McAllister-Hall, Executive Director for CMHA Central Alberta Region.
Cyclists can choose from one of four distances to ride: 10 km, 25 km, 50 km, or 100 km. The 10 and 25 km rides will take place on the trails of Red Deer, while the 50 and 100 km rides will take place on the highway from Red Deer to Delburne.
Co-Chairs Melissa Brilz and Angela Darbel are excited about the improvements being made this year. The addition of the 10 km ride, and moving the 25 km ride in to the City is the most significant change. “While the support we have received from cyclists willing to ride 50 km or 100 km has been amazing over the years, we found that it really limited participation to the experienced rider. It is our hope that by having the option to ride shorter distances, the event will be more appealing to the casual rider and families”.
The registration fee is $25.00 and minimum pledge amounts are required based on the distance being ridden.
