Mental Health & Well-being
We are immensely grateful for the strenth of community collaboration that was so evident to make these events such a success. Together, we are making positive change in our communities across Renfrew County. To all the passionate community champions, from recreation, mental health, well-being, families, individuals, businesses, municipalities and politicians, who supported Clara's Big Ride -- THANK YOU!
We have sold out of our Beautiful Blue Bikes. Businesses and not-for-profit organizations and families have been wonderful supporters of this campaign. Thank you for purchasing a Beautiful Blue Bike to proudly display at your place of business. To show support for Clara’s ride and as an awareness tool during her ride across Renfrew County, the bikes will be temporarily moved and placed along Clara’s route throughout the county. This is a great opportunity to get involved and show support for mental health in our region and across Canada.
Canada is among the leaders in our relatively sophisticated policies, places and programs, with a B+ in Community and the Built Environment, a C+ in School and a C+ in Organized Sport Participation:
95% of parents report local availability of parks and outdoor spaces, and 94% report local availability of public facilities and programs for physical activity, such as pools, arenas and leagues.
