BENEFITING: Anxiety and Depression Association of America
Thanks for taking the time to check this out.
In May I will be riding 3000km+ around Italy on a touring bicycle. I will ride through scorching sun, raging winds, driving rain, and possibly even sleet and hail with extremely impressive adjectives. While I ride, there will be around 200 professional bike racers riding the same roads. At the end of the day, they will hand their light weight race bikes to a mechanic for cleaning and maintenance, they will go and eat the meal that has been prepared for them, get a massage and climb into bed in their hotel room.
Meanwhile, I will be pitching my tent, maintaining my bike, cooking my dinner then eating it, then climbing into my sleeping bag. Why, you may ask? Well, to raise money for some great charities. And of course so I have something interesting to write about for you!
You can follow the adventure as it happens on my website, but while you are here anyway, might as well donate a couple of bucks to charity! 18% of people in the USA suffer from some form of anxiety disorder, while 17% will at some time suffer from depression. The Anxiety and Depression Association of America (ADAA) is the leader in education, training, and research for anxiety, depression, and stress-related disorders. With over 1 in 5 people in the USA suffering from anxiety or depression at some point in their life there is a fair chance that any money you donate now will end up helping you or someone dear to you some time down the line. So that has to make it worth putting in a few bucks, right?
Donating through CrowdRise is simple, fast and totally secure. Once you donate, they’ll send your money directly to the charity, making it the most efficient way to donate - I raise more, whilst saving time and cutting costs for the charity.
