WHY WE RIDE

Recovery from post-trauma injuries requires culturally specific mental health supports that allow for Veterans, First Responders and their families to feel safe, supported and understood.

There are gaps and barriers to care across the mental health continuum and the statistics present a stark reality for our country and highlight a need for action:

  • Out of 5,000 First Responders surveyed 44.5 percent screened positive for one or more mental health injuries.
  • 1,600 CAF members released for medical reasons each year.
  • 11 percent of first responders have reported suicidal thoughts as a result of the job.
