THE STORY:

Shurm Daddy Rec Ride or SDRR is a memorial bike ride for our friend and brother, Brian Schuurman (AKA Shurm Daddy) and a local fundraising event dedicated to raising money to support services related to depression, anxiety, and suicide prevention.

On July 10, 2016, area Grand Rapids bicycle enthusiasts will get together to ride, remember, and recognize those who struggle with these issues of mental health and wellbeing. This will be a leisure group bicycle ride for all ages and levels. All proceeds raised in bike registration, sponsorships, and additional donations will go to benefit the Mental Health Foundation of West Michigan to help promote and sustain their programs.

The Mental Health Foundation of West Michigan is a local organization whose mission to educate and build awareness throughout the community about suicide prevention and other challenges to good mental health in order to ensure every individual is supported in their journey to a full, healthy life. Some of the programs the MHF facilitate include:

•Live. Laugh. Love. A program focusing on suicide prevention and mental healthiness. Some interactive lesson plan topics include: Diminishing the stigma that goes along with mental illness, educating people on coping skills, sharing information on how to prevent depression and suicide, tools for dealing with anxiety, management and education of deliberate self-harm disorders, support for co-occurring disorders related to mental illness and substance abuse, and information on bullying.

•be nice. The be nice initiative is designed to spread awareness surrounding the issues of bullying and the importance of treating people with civility community-wide. By creating awareness, we will minimize and reduce the devastating effects of bullying such as depression and suicide. Bullying is a significant issue within our schools and communities both locally and nationally. The be nice. campaign strives to educate students and community members about how simply "being nice" is an effective way to promote a safe and civil environment within the school and community. To “be nice” is more than just saying don’t bully, it is a strengths-based perspective, and a positive way to minimize bullying. It is a proactive way to encourage kindness among kids, parents, and co-workers. It is all-encompassing. It goes further than just an action.

Event details and schedule:  Would you like to ride?!

Our ride will begin at 3:00 pm (please plan to arrive by 2:45 pm), Sunday July 10 at The Spoke Folks 221 Logan St SW, Grand Rapids, MI 49503. We'll take a 13 mile ride together (with two stops along the way, route coming soon) and end back at The Spoke Folks for a fun celebration.
