Everyone deserves to feel well, whatever their mental health experience. In order to thrive, we all need a good sense of self, and we all need purpose, contribution, hope, resilience and belonging.
When we hide from each other and from how we’re feeling, we don’t get the support or help we deserve or need.
Walk, Run, Ride Don’t Hide gives thousands of people across Canada the opportunity to connect—to their own mental health, to each other and to their broader communities, while raising critical funds that support CMHA mental health programs and services in their own communities.
Walk, Run, Ride Don’t Hide events are welcoming community events that build awareness, inclusion and acceptance, and where everyone is encouraged and supported to speak openly about their own mental health.
To achieve our vision of ‘Mental Health for All’, all funds raised will go into providing nonclinical community and resilience based mental health and addiction supports, services and programs to aid in keeping ‘healthy Nova Scotians healthy’ through providing recovery maintenance supports for those living with mental ill health and addictions related issues.
Our annual Walk, Run, Ride Don't Hide event will take place on Sunday June 23, 2019 at 2:00pm at Shipyards Landing in Bridgewater. This event will raise funds for programs and services to support those living with mental ill health to help them develop the personal tools to lead meaningful and productive lives.

It was such an amazing day of support, community, and fun! our 2018 goal was to raise $30,000, which we didn't quite reach, but we still have hope that we can reach it in 2019, and we can’t do it without you!
