Jack Ride is an annual cycling event held each spring in support of Jack.org’s work to revolutionize youth mental health in Canada.
Jack Ride is Jack.org’s largest fundraising event of the year.
This year, on Jack Ride’s 10th Anniversary, 1,000 riders will meet at Caledon Ski Club in Belfountain to raise $1 million and take part in Canada’s ride for youth mental health.
Generous sponsors cover the cost of the ride, and over 150 volunteers donate their time and expertise, so every rider-raised dollar goes directly to supporting Jack.org’s 2,800 young leaders in their work to dismantle barriers to positive mental health in their communities.
Riders challenge themselves to complete one of four routes through the hills of the Caledon countryside. With 25km, 50km, 100km and 125km options, Jack Ride appeals to new and experienced riders and their families. Some will ride in memory or in honour of a loved one, while others return year after year simply because they love the event itself.
Jack Ride 10 is the beginning of a new cycle. A new era for youth mental health. We’re so proud of all that we’ve accomplished since our first Jack Ride.
We hope you will join in cheering on our wonderful 1,000 riders along the route.
