Bike for the Brain: An Event for Mental Health
Bike for the Brain, a 501(c)(3) organization, hosts an annual community bicycle ride event for mental health. Our goals are to raise funds for Kansas City area agencies that enhance the lives of people with mental health challenges, and to raise public awareness that mental health disorders are brain-based, emotional, and behavioral experiences that are both common and treatable. Bike for the Brain was founded in 2006, and continues to grow each year. You can be involved as a cyclist, sponsor; community partner; volunteer; Walk for Recovery participant, and/or Recovery Information Exchange participant. Come join us! Registration links to ride or volunteer coming soon!
We, like all Americans, are staying up to date with regard to the COVID-19 pandemic. The types of nonprofits that Bike for the Brain supports need help now more than ever as so many are struggling with trying to serve the ever-increasing needs of the community in new and unprecedented ways. We are hopeful that the 2020 Bike for the Brain ride can take place, and as such, the ride is still scheduled for Labor Day, September 7, 2020. Whatever happens, we will continue to support Kansas City area mental health organizations and hope you will, too.
