Thank you to our participants, sponsors, volunteers and organizers for a successful inaugural event! We raised over $100,000 for McLean Hospital.

We could not have done it without you!


The Cause

The Ride for Mental Health is one of the first rides in the country to benefit mental health. The proceeds raised will be donated to McLean Hospital, a Harvard Medical School affiliate, for the education, research and treatment of mental illness including anxiety, borderline personality disorder, depression, eating disorders and substance abuse.


We hope to end the stigma surrounding mental illness through education and awareness. 



Approximately 1 in 5 adults in the U.S.—
43.8 million—experience mental health
issues in a given year.


40 million adults are affected by anxiety in the U.S. 


14 million Americans are affected by borderline personality disorders at some time in their life.


The Ride

Few rides offer participants the opportunity to both work hard for a worthwhile cause while in such picturesque surroundings.  Showcasing the natural beauty of the Hudson Valley, The Ride for Mental Health offers a variety of routes in a stunning setting.


Ways to be involved



Your contributions will help accelerate progress at McLean Hospital to improve the lives of individuals and families affected by mental illness. Donations are100% tax deductible.
