Welcome to my blog. My name is Martin and I love the outdoors. Like you, I’ve been on some fun adventures in my life and will have many more in the future when the opportunity arises. It’s only now that I’ve decided to blog about it. So take a look around.
I am currently bicycling across Canada. There is a theme to my journey that makes this trip all the more worthwhile. I am Going the Distance For Mental Health. I doing this in support of Griffin Centre.
Griffin Centre is a not-profit, charitable, mental health agency providing essential services to youth, adults and their families in Ontario. They have been helping people who thought their needs didn’t count and they continue to expand their programs and services in order to respond to the changing needs to our community.
Griffin Centre’s mission is to promote positive change for vulnerable youth and adults with mental health challenges and/or developmental disabilities. They are dedicated to delivering innovative services and developing creative partnerships that enhance lives and communities.
I hope my trip will inspire others to push through and strive in achieving their goals. Much in the same way that Griffin helps over 1,000 people each year to recognize their strengths, achieve their goals and improve their lives.
My goal is to raise $3650 for Griffin Centre. That’s 50 cents per kilometre.
