​GTH to host CMHA community event

Tuesday, March 21, 2017 - Regina, Saskatchewan

The Global Transportation Hub (GTH) is pleased to partner with the Canadian Mental Health Association (CMHA) Regina Branch to be part in this year’s, Ride Don’t Hide. This annual community bike event aims to raise awareness and help break the stigma surrounding mental health while raising funds to support essential mental health programs in the community.

The Co-operators Ride Don’t Hide Regina event takes place Sunday, June 25, 2017 at the GTH.

“The GTH is proud to come on a venue sponsor for this event,” said Bryan Richards, President and CEO of the GTH. “This is an important health issue that affects millions of Canadians; it makes sense for us to be part of a community event that helps drive a healthier and productive community.”

It’s expected hundreds of cyclists and volunteers, made up of individuals, work groups and families will register for this year’s edition, helping raise over $1,500,000 nationwide.
With 7.5 km of paved, extra-wide roadways, the GTH offers a safe and inviting environment for local participants.

“We couldn’t be more pleased with the level of support this event is receiving from the GTH and those clients that operate within that community,” said Shannon Patton, Director of Community Engagement for the CMHA, Regina Branch. “Morguard, Loblaw, Slinkemo Enterprises and Sterling Truck & Trailer are among those businesses operating at the GTH which have all already come on board as sponsors.”

CMHA rides are hosted in six provinces in 35 communities with the aim to engage over 8,000 participants across the country.
