Ride For Mental Health

Donation protected
My name is Pippa Scott, and I created ride for mental health to spread awareness for teen suicide in the snowboard community. I started snowboarding when I was three and started competing when I was six. Snowboarding has taken me around the world, helped define me as a person, and taught me many life lessons. When I was thirteen, and covid started, my parents received an email saying that Peirce had died due to suicide. I wasn’t very close with him because he was on the ASTC East team, and I was on the ASTC West team, but being from Vermont, knowing we were on the same team and had the same roots it hit close to home it was hard to process at such a young age. Then when I was 14 and in 8th grade, I lost someone who I never thought I could live with out. loving is losing and learning how to live with out people who meant the world to you is one of the hardest things i have ever had to do. Today and everyday forward i choice to ride for eli mcdermott.

When I turned 16 I found out that one of my classmates and a fellow teammate had died due to suicide. My heart is heavy for Lucas but it still doesn't feel real that he is gone. He was the type of kid who thought rules were set in place for him to break. He was witty and had some of the best one-liners I had ever heard. He was quick on his feet and cared deeply about being right in almost every conversation. He cared most about having fun on his snowboarding and skateboarding more than anything else.

we can make an impact and invoke change. Removing the stigma about mental health and openly talking about it is one of ride for mental health top priority. kids who are struggling with mental health use snowboarding as an outlet. It needs to be known that the snowboarding community is backing them no matter what. On and off snow we need to support one another.The friends I have lost have devastated me beyond words. We can be the change and show these kids that struggling is normal and to be vulnerable with their friends is as important as landing their runs in competitions. Suicide is a major public health problem that affects all ages, genders, races, and backgrounds. It is the tenth leading cause of death in the United States, and it is on the rise. we have already wasted too much time ignoring the evident issues of mental heath in our community it is finally time to bridge the gab and be there for one another. Please consider supporting our cause and making a donation today. You can make a difference in the lives of those who are struggling.
