About This Activity

The First Move for Mental Health Charity Bike Ride will take place at Laurel Acres Park in Mount Laurel, NJ on Sunday, September 10th, 2017. There are options for a 5 mile route, a 25 mile route, and a 50 mile route. All proceeds will benefit the Mental Health Association in Southwestern New Jersey.   Each rider is expected to pay a $25 registration fee and offer a minimum donation of $20.  All proceeds benefit the Mental Health Association.  Water, snacks, rider bibs, and a t-shirt will be provided to all registered riders, but you must also bring your own water, and you are encouraged to bring your own snacks as well for your ride. Families - please register each rider individually.   If you would like to fundraise in addition to the $20 donation fee, you may select this option upon signing up. You will be given your own Crowdrise account, and you can ask friends and family to donate by sharing your own, unique link.   T-shirts are no longer guaranteed, as they will be distributed upon availability!   The Mental Health Association in Southwestern New Jersey is a nonprofit organization that is dedicated to improving the public's understanding of mental health while decreasing the stigma associated with this topic. This mission is accomplished through education, advocacy, and community outreach. For more information, please visit http://www.mhaswnj.org.
