Please join The LIPF for our 3rd year riding for the research and treatment of depression and suicide prevention.
Every year, one in four adults will suffer from a diagnosable mental disorder. In 2011, the CDC reported that nearly 500,000 people were treated in emergency departments for self-inflicted injuries. The active military suicide rate continues to surpass combat-related deaths.
ONLY 61 percent of Americans think it appropriate to tell family members about a mental illness diagnosis, according to a recent study commissioned by the New York City Metro chapter of the National Alliance on Mental Illness. Just 43 percent approve of telling friends about a diagnosis, and just 13 percent of telling co-workers.
It's time to make a difference.
This is our second year as an official charity partner with the TD Five Boro Bike Tour and we hope you will consider riding for our foundation. You will receive a VIP pass to the tour at the front of the pack, including breakfast & lunch and our 2014 LIPF Jersey.
Of course we will be stopping at Pedro's for a margarita and group photo before the final ride into Staten Island.
