At no point in history has mental health been at the forefront of a worldwide crisis. Hundreds of millions of people in the world suffer from mental health issues which wreaks havoc on their lives and affects their families as well. I have been diagnosed with Bi Polar 1, anxiety, depression and PTSD.  My daughter whom is a major source of inspiration to me and likewise suffers from a multitude of mental health illnesses. In short, it has been a very difficult battle coping with my illness and the affects it has on family and friends – that being said it has also given me the inspiration to ride my bicycle around the globe to raise awareness for mental health!

I just finished cycling across Asia (Thailand, Laos, Vietnam and Cambodia) and the millions of souls we reached and the hundreds of thousands of dollars raised impelled me to make the decision to create a global movement - starting with Canada then on through the Americas. I have experience in targeting a global audience when I rode across Cambodia on two occasions to raise awareness and money towards battling the epidemic of human trafficking. As of now all funds donated would go towards supporting fuel, food, supplies and lodging costs. Once we hit the road the funds raised will go towards getting my daughter the proper treatment and directly supporting families in need.

Besides being a cyclist, I am a humanitarian, published author, documentary producer and international public speaker - please see below for links. I intend on leaving June 1st  to cross Canada in two months while gaining as much media attention as possible to this worthy cause. After Canada it's onto the Americas before the rest of the globe. I appreciate your consideration as every dollar helps!

Infinitely grateful,
Ryan Phillips
