Three young Winnipeg men are on a 2,300 km bike ride from Vancouver to their home town to raise money for the Mood Disorders Society of Canada.
Corey Boult, his friends, Will Johnston and Jeff Lloyd, had little biking experience when they undertook the ride in memory of Boult’s father, who recently died after having long-term depression. They want to raise money for the Mood Disorders Society of Canada and help prevent other families from experiencing the pain of depression.
They see this ride, Wheel to Heal 2011, Let’s Ride Above Depression, as an opportunity to challenge themselves and assist those who deal with the challenges of depression every day. They also want to remind people of the proved importance of exercise, friendship and support as key elements in promoting well-being.
