Setting out from Cornwall in the morning, Clara Hughes will be bringing the mental health message to Montréal, Sherbrooke, Trois Rivières, Québec City, Saguenay, Les Escoumins, Baie-Comeau, Matane and Rimouski
CORNWALL, ON, March 25, 2014 /CNW Telbec/ - Tomorrow morning, six-time Olympic medalist and Bell Let's Talk national spokesperson Clara Hughes rides into Québec to spend the next 10 days bringing the mental health message to communities around the province. Tomorrow will be Day 13 of Clara's Big Ride for Bell Let's Talk, her 12,000 kilometre, 110-day bike journey around Canada to achieve a nation free of the stigma around mental illness.
"Québec was my home for many years as I trained for Olympic competition so I'm really eager to return and meet people everywhere to share our mental health stories," said Clara. "Talking openly about the many ways mental illness has impacted us is the most important step in lifting the stigma that still lingers around mental illness. I thank the people of Cornwall for their warm welcome and look forward to seeing everyone in Montréal tomorrow!"
Clara will visit the following communities during her ride through Québec:
- Montréal – March 26 to 28
- Sherbrooke – March 28 to 29
- Trois Rivières – March 29 to 31
- Québec City – March 31 to April 1
- Saguenay – April 1 to 2
- Les Escoumins – April 2 to 3
- Baie-Comeau – April 3
- Matane – April 3 to 4
- Rimouski – April 4 to 5
Clara will start each day of the Big Ride in Québec with presentations at local schools and other community events organized by Community Champions before she hits the road again. More details on the daily events and our Community Champions can be found at Bell.ca/ClarasBigRide.
In Cornwall today, Clara is attending a welcome event at Holy Trinity Catholic Secondary School at 3:45 pm and then to "Clara's Big Ride visits Akwesasne" tonight from 7 pm to 8:30 pm at the Tri District Elders Centre, 10 Community Centre Road in Akwesasne.
