Peace Be The Journey bike ride for mental health awareness

This year we are changing our event due to Covid2019, we will be doing a virtual bike ride.

This bike ride was started by Mike Peterson for his wife Amanda who suffers from mental illness from childhood. He wanted to do something to help her and other who suffer from mental illness and bring it into the light and let it be know it is alright to talk about.
