Depression is a treatable medical illness marked by changes in mood, thoughts, energy and behavior that affects more than 23 million adult Americans each year. It is the most common serious brain disease in the United States. SAVE's mission is to prevent suicide through public awareness and education, reduce stigma, and serve as a resource for those touched by suicide.
Please join us for the Tour de SAVE bike ride on August 10th, 2019 organized by the Portland Velo cycling club. The route is approximately 62 miles (100 kilometers) - with a shorter, flatter 50 mile option. There will be an opportunity to stop and get food and water along the route.Cyclists will roll out in groups with the fastest riders leaving first. Each group will have a designated ride leader and will start the ride in a mile of silent tribute to those who lost their lives to suicide. So come out and show your support for a great cause and remember those that have lost their battle to depression.
The ride begins at Evergreen Office Park at 9:00 a.m. Suggested donation is $25.00. You are also able to set up your own fundraising page once your register. It's an easy way to raise awareness and money for suicide prevention.
The Tour de SAVE 2019 is open to everyone. Since this is also a Portland Velo Saturday Signature ride, there a few things to note.
