Prince George, B.C.- There is still time to get  the bike ready for the  Ride Don’t Hide  event set for Sunday in Prince Georg


The  ride is aimed at raising awareness about  mental health,  and  for a registration fee,  bicycle riders can choose   the length of ride that suits their  abilities  as there are routes for 6km, 10 km,  20km and 30 km.  Only the 30 km  route includes  the University Way hill.

Prince George is one of 30 communities in five provinces  taking part in this event.  Locally, the event  hopes to raise $15 thousand dollars.   All proceeds from the PG event will be staying in Prince George to provide education services  through  the delivery of Living Life to the Full  and Mental Health  First Aid.
